Output light not exactly polarized along a rarely specified Values depend on type of polarizer Discuss types of polarizers Constructing Polarizers Hecht 83 86 Already know one way to polarize light

scattered light polarized Not typically useful as polarizer Dich roism Hecht 83 Dichroism 2 selective absorption of one linear polarization Clearly useful for polarizers Example microwave polarizer Array of parallel wires spacing ltlt A E aligned with wires drive current resistance gt power dissipation gt absorption E L wires little current no absorption Acts as a polarizer transmits only E L wires Watch out graphically want to picture vertical E squeezing through slots Actual effect is just the opposite Optical version wires gt long polymer chains Embed in clear plastic Stretch plastic to

edges smoothed out avoid oscillations with better filter function 15 Works just like low pass filter in electronics Applications Remove high frequency noise example dust on image Remove pixelation example digital image projector my Question What happens to the total power of the image when it is filtered Alternatively make filter 2 small opaque spot Disk radius a blocks components with k 13 k5 lt f Acts as high pass filter Not as directly useful as low pass filter but related to phase contrast imaging In slit example say filter 2 stripe Use width a 10 mm Cutoff km 2 063 um1 Blocks five

known artifact or noise in image design filter to remove Hecht figure 1334 1335 has nice examples Question Suppose one used a edge filter that blocked all kw lt O and passed all kw gt 0 What would be the effect on the image Demo Set up as in examples fll Ff l Object 1 2 wire grid array of square holes Object 2 circular hole Filter 2 circular aperture low pass or sphere mounted on glass slide high

phase variation of object to irradi ance variation in image Called phase contrast imaging Understand idea from scattered waves scattered wave incident wave object Think of object as small transparent lens 27 Several types of phase contrast imaging High pass filter 2 dark field method also called dark ground background is dark Demo same setup as before Object 2 scotch tape pattern Similar idea use edge filter block 6 function l half of scattered field Called schlieren method Easier to align don39t need small dot Demo movie 28 Third method bright field Like dark field but different filter

Main advantage of bright field Dark field schlieren give signal oc 52 gt Bright field signal stronger for small 5 Disadvantage bright background Source of noise Not as pretty Bright field common in biology 32 Holograms Another neat diffraction trick Question Why is it so easy to tell the difference between an object and a photograph of the object Some points We percieve scattered light in either case Get same irradiance from each 33 To get 3D effect recreate complete scattered field Real object scattered object wave eye illumination 34 In some plane 239 0 have Eacy0 Aacy Could recreate field
