Any stressed photoelastic medium can be reduced to an optically equivalent model consisting of a linear retarder, with retardation delta1 and principal axis at azimuth phgr1, and a pure rotator of power phgr2. The paper describes two simple methods to determine these quantities experimentally. Further, a method is described to overcome the problem of rotational effects in scattered-light investigations. This new method makes use of the experimentally determined characteristic parameters.
