The purpose of this study is to design an optimal strontium carbonate (SrCO3) crystal which can effectively compensate
the orientational birefringence of polymers. Additionally, we try to compensate large positive birefringence which
polycarbonate (PC) exhibits. Furthermore, we analyze the orientational behaviors of the crystals in biaxially drawn
polymer films. As a result of the measurement of orientational birefringence of the polymer films doped with SrCO3 with
various average sizes and aspect ratios and estimation of orientation function of the crystals, we found out that SrCO3
with higher aspect ratio and larger size had higher compensation efficiency for the birefringence. As a result of
measurement of transparency, we found out that the copolymer film doped with SrCO3 with higher aspect ratio and
larger size was less transparent. Therefore, it was suggested that we should design an optimal crystal for particular
purposes from the standpoint of the birefringence compensation efficiency and transparency when we apply this method
to an optics application. Additionally, we succeed in designing a zero birefringent PC by doping with SrCO3.
Furthermore, we found out that SrCO3 was aligned in a perpendicular direction to the thickness direction and was
randomly oriented in planar direction in biaxially drawn polymer films.
