What is the direction (vertical or horizontal) of the transmission axis of Polaroid sunglasses? Give the physical reason for your answer.


    Polaroid filters are incorporated into sunglasses. Because the light reflecting off most surfaces will tend to be partly polarized with a predominance of the electric fields oscillating horizontally, that “glare” can be diminished by having the transmission axis of the Polaroid filters aligned vertically.
