Polarization Display

1992-2009: Polarization and Geometric Optics

A display of polarization phenomena was installed in a large cabinet in the hallway of the Physics Building at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1992. Over the years it was upgraded, and a floor-to-ceiling size cabinet was constructed in in 2007-08. Geometric optic phenomena are displayed on the lower level, and polarization phenomena in the upper level. The slide show describes the phenomena included in the display.
