  • Polarized light


Polarized light that only oscillates in a single direction transverse to its direction of propagation. Principle of polarization of light (source: Vision Doctor). Polarized light can be used to avoid reflections (especially with ring lighting) and to visualize structures in transparent objects. When a surface is illuminated with polarized incident light, all rays reflected by […]

Polarization filter

Filter (glass plate or foil) from which almost completely linearly polarized light emerges. Polarization filters can be used to avoid reflections. This is usually a rotatable lens filter that suppresses light reflections and ensures a richer color rendition. Disturbing reflections from glass panes, liquid surfaces, shiny metallic materials or smooth, reflective plastic surfaces can thus […]
