As the beam passes through the specimen, its birefringent
structures modify the beam polarization in such a way that, after the special polarization analyzer, non-birefringent specimen parts appear black and birefringent
loboi presents as a characteristic bulbous chain of yeast-like cells, 9-10[micro] in diameter, with thick (double) birefringent
walls in the cytoplasm of the histiocytes as well as outside.

Under polarizing light microscopy, the presence of birefringent
crystals was confirmed.
UNITRON's 12100 Polarizing Microscope Series is an ideal instrument for educational applications and routine laboratory use for the examination of birefringent
materials for geology, petrography and crystallography.
These gels may have a level of crystallinity and thus be birefringent
under polarized light.

Even when the sun is hidden behind clouds or just below the horizon, it is possible to pinpoint its location by detecting the polarization of light Scientists have thought that Vikings' sunstones may have been made of a kind of calcite crystal called Iceland spar, which is "birefringent
," meaning that it splits the light that enters it and produces a double image.
