Description:

This item is an interactive Java simulation for students of introductory physics or optics on the phenomenon known as birefringence. It simulates a virtual microscope with a double-refracting crystal positioned in crossed polarizers. Users can rotate the crystal through a 360-degree rotation to view the effect. This item is part of a larger collection of materials for students of introductory optics and microscopy.
