In the experiment on polarisation you have already learned that
light is an electromagnetic wave which can be restricted in the
direction of its vibration - can be polarised. To do this two
linear polarisation filters were used. In this experiment you will
learn how light is polarised by birefringence.
- Specified for the requirements of the german final secondary-school examinations
- Especially for secondary schools
- Quantum and wave optics in a student experiment
How can light be 'twisted'? In this experiment you will learn
how light is polarised by birefringence.
