Description:

This edition of the Cool Stuff Newsletter from Arbor Scientific includes a description of polarized light, with several examples and diagrams, including the "picket fence model." Particularly valuable are the experiments described and illustrated, which can be done with a pair of polarizers and household materials. These experiments include rotating polarizers, polarization by reflection, and exploring an optical illusion that can be made with polarizers and a shoebox.
