The Effect of the Polarization Characteristics of Probe Light on the Signal of Optically Detected Magnetic Resonance in Magnetometric and Gyroscopic Quantum Sensors

We consider the effect of the polarization characteristics of probe light on the signal of optically detected magnetic resonance in quantum sensors, including quantum magnetometers based on the phenomenon of electron paramagnetic resonance and quantum gyroscopes employing both the electron and nuclear magnetic resonance. Relationships between the magnetic resonance signal magnitude and parameters of the optical system elements, which are based on the Stokes–Mueller formalism, are derived and verified. It is found that the main destructive influence in the signal in a standard two-beam scheme is produced by phase delays introduced by both metallic and dielectric mirrors. Methods for compensation of this destructive influence are proposed and verified.
