Caption: Photoelastic stress in plastic protractor. Photoelastic stress in a plastic protractor is observed by placing it between co-aligned (middle panel) and crossed (bottom panel) linear polarizers. Built-in stress causes optical birefringence which is revealed as colored bands when illuminated by white light. Also shown (top panel) is the same protractor in un-polarized light.
