This item is an interactive Java simulation relating to birefringence, also known as double refraction. It depicts the birefringence color chart, a tool developed by 19th Century scientist Auguste Michel-Levy to correlate birefringence, thickness, and optical path difference in analyzing materials. Users can click on the chart to view how polarization colors seen with a microscope are correlated with thickness and retardation values. This item is part of a larger collection of materials for students of introductory optics and microscopy developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
