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. 5)
