W hen a stream of polarized light is decomposed into two streams which, after having been modified in a slightly different manner, are reunited, the mixture is found to have acquired properties which are quite distinct from those of the original stream, and give rise to a number of curious and apparently complicated phenomena. These phenomena have now, however, through the labours of Young and Fresnel, been completely reduced to law, and embraced in a theory, the wonderful simplicity of which… Expand
