This item is an interactive Java simulation for students of introductory physics or optics relating to birefringence. It features a virtual calcite crystal superimposed over the word "Birefringence". Due to the refractive properties of this type of crystal, the letters appear as a ghosted double image. The user can rotate the crystal and the polarizer to alter the transmission axis. This item is part of a larger collection of materials on introductory optics developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
