Polarization Shannon Berg November 18, 2010 Physics 255b Section 4 Object The main purpose of this lab is to learn about the effects of polarization on transmitted light. In addition, the relationship between the angle created by the axes of two polarizers and the intensity of the transmitted light through the two polarizers will be explored along with Malus' Law. Apparatus 1) PASPORT Light Sensor 2) 2 USB Links 3) PASPORT Rotary Motion Sensor 4) Basic Optics System 5) Aperture Bracket 6) Polarization Analyzer Procedure 1) Attach the rotary motion sensor to the polarization analyzer and attach the plastic band to the polarization analyzer and rotary motion sensor. 2) Place a polarizer and the basic optics light source on the optics bench. 3) Turn the polarizer so that the zero degree mark is close to the reference peg of the accessory holder. 4) After mounting the polarization analyzer on the optics bench turn on the light source.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
