Optical radiation lies between radio waves and x-rays on the spectrum‚ exhibiting a unique mix of ray‚ wave‚ and quantum properties. At x-ray and shorter wavelengths‚ electromagnetic radiation tends to be quite particle like

  • Polarizing Light

    Polarized light are those that are vibrating in one direction- in a single plane such as up and down. Those that are vibrating in more than one direction -- in more than one plane such as both up/down and left/right -- are called unpolarized light. Generally‚ unpolarized light can be considered to be vibrating in a vertical and a horizontal plane. To polarize light‚ one can transmit the light through a polariod filter which will only allow light of single polarity to pass. The resulting light will be

  • Reflection of Light

    Of course‚ we live in an imperfect world and not all surfaces are smooth. When light strikes a rough surface‚ incoming light rays reflect at all sorts of angles because the surface is uneven. This scattering occurs in many of the objects we encounter every day. The surface of paper is a good example. You can see just how rough it is if you peer at it under a microscope. When light hits paper‚ the waves are reflected in all directions. This is what makes paper so incredibly useful -- you can read

  • Light and Matter

    Chapter II Light and Matter The Inner Workings of the Cosmos 2.4 The Distribution of Radiation All microscopic objects – fires‚ cubes‚ people‚ and stars – emit radiation at all times. They radiate because the microscopic charged particles in them are in constant random motion‚ and whenever charges change their state of motion‚ electromagnetic radiation is emitted. The temperature of an object is a direct measure of the amount of microscopic motion within it. The hotter the object
