How Polariscopes Works: Principles of Polarized Light and Stress/Strain Analysis

A polariscope consists of two crucial components: a light source that emits polarized light, and polarizing filters that control the orientation of the light. When the polarized light interacts with a material, it undergoes changes in intensity and color, revealing the internal stresses within the material. This transformation allows analysts to precisely map and measure the strain distribution across the material.
