Birefringent Crystals

# 6H35.10

Description These calcite crystals are a birefringent medium, so they split one light beam into two beams. There are different indices of refraction for different polarizations. In p polarization, n=1.4864 and in s polarization, n=1.6584. Images appears double if it is placed on text of boo; Images will be shifted if turning a polarizer on it.
