  • How To Make Polarized Art With Household Items
    Easy instructional video on how to make a polarized light mosaic out of everyday items. Great project to do at home or for students learning about light polarization.
  • Science Snack: Rotating Light
    White light is made up of all the colors in the rainbow. When polarized white light passes through a sugar solution, each color’s direction of polarization is changed by a different amount. The colors change as the depth of the solution changes or as the polarizing filter is rotated. Try it yourself in this activity from the Exploratorium. https://www.exploratorium.edu/snacks/rotating-light

  • Art With Polarization #light #phablabs
    In this project we will create beautiful pieces of art that can change their colour when you move them. We do this by using the phenomenon called polarisation - this is a property that light waves exhibit. So, in the end, you will not only use your creativity but also learn something about the physics of light! Besides, you will use a laser cutter, a 3D printer and many of the other handy tools provided in a Fab Lab. https://www.instructables.com/id/Art-With-Polarization-light-phablabs/

  • Polarization
    You may not be aware of it, but polarized light is all around you. Generally speaking, the human visual system is not particularly adept at perceiving polarized light. While some animals, bees in particular, are quite sensitive to polarized light, humans usually find it difficult to detect it with the unaided eye.  Find out more from this lesson on Polarization from Arbor Scientific.
