The effect of refraction on linearly polarized light was investigated by photographing two refracting bodies placed between linear polarizers that were lying in parallel planes, for varying angles between the transmission axes of the polarizers. The light intensity distributions from representative quadrants in the positive images were measured and compared with theoretical predictions for the crossed and the parallel polarizer conditions.
