Abstract
Interferometric sensors exhibit very high measurement resolution. In order to attain high accuracy, these sensors are often implemented as polarization interferometers, in which stable and well-defined states of polarization are maintained. By using correction techniques originally developed for metrology and outlined in this paper, accuracy of discussed sensors can be further increased by adjusting gains and offsets in detection setup. Sensors that can use this technique are presented and problems arising in implementation of polarization interferometric sensors are discussed.
