λ/4 retarder film measurements, raw data

The R code below also depends on these measurements of the λ/4 retarder film (#88-253, Edmund Optics, Barrington, NJ) from Blake et al. (2019, https://doi.org/10.5061/dryad.xgxd254bs) but not included here. The file consists of 136 transmission measurements taken through a λ/4 retarder film sandwiched between two polarizers. The measurements were taken at different rotations of the λ/4 retarder film (97°, 93°, 91°, 90°, 89°, 85°, 81°, 77°, 73°, 69°, 65°, 61°, 57°, 53°, 49°, 46°, 45°, 44°, 43°, 41°, 39°, 35°, 31°, 27°, 23°, 19°, 15°, 11°, 7°, 3°, 1°, 0°, -1°, -5°), and different angles between the axes of the two polarizers (0°, 45°, 90°, 135°).
