Light Polarization

Polarization is one of the fundamental properties of light. It can affect how light propagates through certain materials, and can be utilized to achieve some experimental end. In this area of the website, we will be going from some of the basic concepts of light polarization, including what is polarization, to more advanced concepts such as optical devices that utilize the polarizability of light. Here are links to the next sections, in case you would like to skip around to any of them:

Section 1: Polarization Introduction
Section 2: Wave Properties of Light
Section 3: The Propagation of Light
Section 4: Light-Matter Interactions
Section 5: Geometrical Optics
Section 6: Interferometry
Section 7: Diffraction
Section 8: Coherence Theory
