A simple but general chart has been developed for the solution of Mallard's formula and other relations used in the quantitative interpretation of interference figures produced by anisotropic crystals in convergent polarized light. This chart represents a general solution of the equations:
The chart can be used conveniently for certain types of orientation measurements as well as for the measurement of optic axial angles of biaxial crystals.
