Polarisation (POL)

Zwillinge in Sn

  • The specimen is illuminated by polarized light (polarizer)
  • The orientation of the crystal lattice regarding the surface is influencing the oscillation plane of the light beam
  • Another polarizing filter (analyzer) in the reflected beam allows brightness contrast of different crystal orientations
