Abstract. The problem of light beam vector characteristics measurement with optical heterodyne method is considered. Scale of projection image of polarization ellipse is studied. Some precautions against the observed perturbations on measuring accuracy are suggested.
Keywords: polarization, optical heterodyning, interference picture, amplitude-phase characteristics, photodetector
