Abstract

An overview of a scattering polarizer containing calcium carbonate whiskers (aragonite) in a polyolefin polymer was presented. A refractive index match and mismatch was observed from the uniaxial orientation of the host polymer and the alignment of aragonite in the drawing direction. The results demonstrated the dependence of the transmittance on the polarization direction of the incident light.
