Polarisation

Although the first official recordings of polarization date back to 1669, it was Dr. Land who was able to transform this phenomenon of physics into practical commercial applications

 

As the inventor of the first polarizing sunglass lens, Polar has become synonymous with polarization. The benefits of Polar polarized sunglasses are optimal visibility, eye strain reduction, colour fidelity, contrast enhancement and increased depth perception. Polar polarized sunglasses eliminate glare.

Wherever you wear Polar polarized sunglasses – at the sea, in the snow, in the mountains, reading a book in the sun or doing outdoor sports – insist on Polar polarized sunglasses.

How Do Polarized Lenses Work?

When sunlight reflects off a horizontal surface like a road or water, it often becomes concentrated horizontally. This is called glare.

Vertical light is useful to the human eye. Glare makes it difficult and uncomfortable to see clearly.

Non-polarized sunglasses don't block glare.

Polar polarized sunglasses block glare and allow only useful vertical light to reach your eyes.

Polar polarized sunglasses block glare and UV light so you can see more clearly and protect your eyes from harmful rays.

Polarized Light

Polarized light consists of individual photons whose electric field vectors are all aligned in the same direction. Ordinary light is unpolarized because the photons are emitted in a random manner, while laser light is polarized because the photons are emitted coherently. When light passes through a polarizing filter, the electric field interacts more strongly with molecules having certain orientations. This causes the incident beam to separate into two beams, whose electric vectors are perpendicular to each other. A horizontal filter absorbs photons whose electric vectors are vertical (as shown here). The remaining photons are absorbed by a second filter turned 90° to the first. At other angles the intensity of transmitted light is proportional to the square of the cosine of the angle between the two filters. In the language of quantum mechanics, polarization is called state selection. Because photons have only two states, light passing through the filter separates into only two beams.
