This item is an interactive virtual microscope simulation relating to birefringence, also known as double refraction. Double refraction occurs naturally in materials such as calcite crystals, but can also be created in isotropic materials. Birefringence is widely used in optical devices, such as LCD and color filters. In this applet, users rotate a virtual polarizer from 0 to 180 degrees to see the effect on a variety of birefringent specimens.
