Unpolarized Light

Some articles on unpolarized light, light, unpolarized:

Polarization (waves) - Theory - Unpolarized Light
... contain a large number of atoms or molecules that emit light ... these emitters may not be correlated, in which case the light is said to be unpolarized ... If there is partial correlation between the emitters, the light is partially polarized ...
Coherence (physics) - Polarization Coherence
... Light also has a polarization, which is the direction in which the electric field oscillates ... Unpolarized light is composed of incoherent light waves with random polarization angles ... The electric field of the unpolarized light wanders in every direction and changes in phase over the coherence time of the two light waves ...

Famous quotes containing the word light:

    The modern city hardly knows pure darkness or pure silence anymore, nor does it know the effect of a single small light or that of a lonely distant shout.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)
