  • polariscope A combination of a polarizer and an analyzer that is used to detect birefringence or rotation of the plane of polarization of materials placed between them. Useful for the determination of stress within a mounted optical element.
  • polarizer An optical device capable of transforming unpolarized or natural light into polarized light, usually by selective transmission of polarized rays.
  • analyzer An optical device, such as a Nicol prism, capable of producing plane-polarized light, and used for detecting the effect of the object on plane-polarized light produced by the polarizer.
