Definition of plane polarization in English:

plane polarization


mass noun
  • A process restricting the vibrations of electromagnetic radiation, especially light, to one direction.

    • ‘Details are also given of a device which compensates for the spurious partial plane polarization that otherwise causes slight differences in reflectance readings when the polarizer on a microscope is rotated, and which simplifies the operations involved in making reflectance measurements on very small grains.’
