This pressed amber yields brilliant interference colours in polarized light.
The convection of a medium thus polarized involves electric disturbance, and therefore must contribute to the true electric current; the determination of this constituent of the current is the most delicate point in the investigation.
(5), of polarized light are executed in a direction perpendicular to the plane of polarization.
Conceive a beam of plane polarized light to move among a number of particles, all small compared with any of the wavelengths.
The crystals are feebly doubly refracting, and in polarized light exhibit a banded structure parallel to the cube faces.
