Polarization Overview - Part 1: Polarization Basics

Polarizers are optical components designed to filter, modify, or analyze the various polarization states of light. Polarizers are commonly integrated into optical systems to decrease glare or increase contrast, or for measuring changes in magnetic fields, temperature, or chemical interactions. Join Brian McCall as he discusses the types of polarization and polarizers. Learn more about polarizers in our Introduction to Polarization application note or in Part 2 of our Polarization Overview series
