Notes on Polarizing Film
Here are some possible sources of polarizing film:
Polarization.com has a special offer for Scientific American readers: An x 6 inch piece of polarizing film for $7, US shipping included. Offer good until 31 July Polarization.com sells larger quantities in its main store.
Or you can search Scientifics Online and Science Kit for "polarizer" for more options. Note: You want a "linear polarizer" (a square or round shape is fine) but not "circular polarizer." (Article continues below.)
We found it easiest to use polarizers that were as thin as possible, so that they were easier to cut, and easier to butt against each other when creating the which-path labeler arrangement, and also the "double-erasure" arrangement used in step 7 of the experiment. A small sheet of the film should be sufficient.
To do the experiment, you don't need to know which orientation of your polarizer is horizontal and which vertical. It all works the same, so long as the two sides of the "path labeler" are polarized at right angles to one another, the two "analyzers" are at those same two angles, and the "erasers" are at 45 degrees from each of them.
Nevertheless, there is a way to tell when your polarizer is vertical. It turns out that the glare reflecting off the floor or off of water is predominantly horizontally polarized. Thus, if you look at the glare through your polarizer and you rotate your polarizer, when the glare is maximally extinguished, the polarizer orientation is vertical. Curiously, light scattered in the sky is also somewhat polarized. If you look at a section of blue sky with the sun behind you, the light scattering toward you will be somewhat horizontally polarized. Some bees can see the polarization of the sky and use it to help them navigate.

What is a polarizer?
It is a filter sheet which allows a specific polarization of lightwaves to pass through and block other light called a polarizer (polarizing film) or Polaroid.
The earliest artificial polarizer was invented by Polaroid company Edwin H. Land in Although it has 90 years of history, but the process principle and material are still roughly the same.
Polarized films are widely used in research labs, the optical industry and equipment.
Commercially available polarizers are made from different materials such as glass, crystal or plastic.
Plastic polarizer films are the least expensive and commonly used in LCD (liquid crystal display) such as screens of calculators or computer monitors, polarized sunglasses, and 3D movie glasses.
Protective film used to protect the polarizing plate surface, consumers need to tear the film when use a polarizer.
Onto this bare polarizer, additional treatments are applied such as an adhesive glue, hard coating, antiglare, anti-reflection and other surface treatments.
At present there are two types of polarizers in the market: iodine polarizing film and dye type polarizing film
The general process, the first is to produce a polarized film, hydrophilic PVA.
After the film is swollen, it is immersed in a dichroic dye solution and stained.
The dichroic dye is usually a solution of iodine and potassium iodide. And then extend the dyeing film, extending to give the Dichroic dye arrangement, the higher the order, the prepared polarizing film optical properties are better.
After the extension of the film after drying, easy to stretch the direction of brittle fracture.
The iodine polarizing film has a high permeability, high contrast and a wide range of wavelength bias characteristics, the price is relatively cheap, so for a wide range of applications.
The polarizing property of the dye-based polarizing film is inferior to that of the iodine system, but the wet heat resistance characteristic is good and belongs to the durability polarized film.
Iodine standard linear polarizing film applications is in a wide range, such as watches, calculator computers, PC, OA machines, LCD. In addition, cars, ships, aircraft, outdoor measurement equipment for the use of dye-based polarizing film such a durable polarizing film.
Light is an electromagnetic wave, the general light in the forward, the electromagnetic vibration direction in all directions. If the electromagnetic vibration occurs only in a plane, that is, the direction of the electric field vibration and magnetic field direction fixed light is called polarized light. The direction of its electric field is called the polarization direction of light.
The type of polarized light:
*Linearly polarized light - The polarized light whose direction of vibration does not change with time.
*Elliptical polarized light - the two orthogonal components of the direction of vibration of the electric field, the amplitude is not the same, the formation of elliptically polarized light.
*The circularly polarized light - the wave direction of the two orthogonal components of the vibration direction is not the same amplitude and amplitude, the formation of circularly polarized light.
It is through the electromagnetic or mechanical action to have dichroic acid quinine sulfuric acid small crystals neatly arranged in a transparent plastic film made of.
Artificial polarizer as a result of a simple manufacturing process, cheap, and can be made into a larger area, which has been widely used.
At present in the general polarization instrument and many of the partial and the partial detection device using artificial polarizer.
For example, when watching a three-dimensional movie, the audience needs to wear a pair of glasses, which is a pair of vibration perpendicular to each other polarized film.
The principle is that we usually only use two glasses to see the object to produce three-dimensional sense, if the use of two shots, such as the human eye, from two different directions at the same time takes the film scene image, made positive film.
In the projection through the two projectors with the vibration direction perpendicular to each other, two linearly polarized light superimposed on the screen, the human eye through the above polarized glasses to watch, each eye can only see a corresponding independent image, Like a direct view to produce a three-dimensional feeling.
Here are some reviews from our customers:
Answer: You need a linear polarizer film with/without adhesive to replace the old film.
Answer: The difference between P and PA is that PA has adhesive on one side, while P has NO adhesive on both sides.
