Plexiglass demonstration. Science weekend student exhibitors demonstrating to members of the public how to view tension in plexiglass. Plexiglass is an isotropic material which can be made anisotropic. Anisotropic materials split light into two beams with different polarisations. Interference between the beams results in a coloured effect, which enables the use of special glasses to see where the plexiglass has been subject to tension. This event took place on 1 October 2016 at the AMOLF building at the University of Amsterdam Science Park, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This open day is part of the wider 'Weekend of Science' (weekend van de wetenschap) held in the Netherlands. Scientific institutions throughout the country hold public events and displays.
