Polarized light.

EN: Polarized light.


Light waves vibrating in one plane only as opposed to the multi-directional vibrationsof normal rays. Natural effect produced by some reflecting surfaces, such as glass,water, polished wood, etc., but can also be simulated by placing a special screenin front of the light source. The transmission of polarized light is restrained byusing a screen at an angle to the plane of polarization.
