Application Example: Maltese Cross Phenomenon

FRED has the capability to simulate polarization of rays through an optical system. Light sources can be randomly, circularly, or linearly polarized. Optical components that filter or manipulate polarization, such as birefringent wave plates and polarizers, can be accurately modeled. One simple example of polarization modeling in FRED is the Maltese cross phenomenon.
