Abstract: We have measured the phase anisotropy of four very high reflectivity (R > 0.999969) interferential mirrors for polarized light at strictly normal incidence by studying the birefringence properties of a Fabry-Perot cavity to which a Nd:YAG laser has been frequency locked. We found phase anisotropies per reflection ranging from less than 2 x 10(-7) rad to 2 x 10(-6) rad.
