This item is an interactive Java simulation for students of introductory physics or optics relating to birefringent materials. It examines the use of compensators (often plates composed of quartz, muscovite, or gypsum) which are used in the laboratory to produce a fixed optical path difference. The user may choose from among five compensator materials and three specimen materials. Specimen and compensator thickness are also adjustable. This item is part of a larger collection of materials on introductory optics developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
