Experiencing Light's Properties within Your Own Eye
Mauser, Michael
Physics Teacher, v49 n1 p19-21 Jan 2011
Seeing the reflection, refraction, dispersion, absorption, polarization, and scattering or diffraction of light within your own eye makes these properties of light truly personal. There are practical aspects of these within the eye phenomena, such as eye tracking for computer interfaces. They also offer some intriguing diversions, for example, being able to identify polarized light with the naked eye. Finally, some interesting features of the eye are revealed, like the presence of particles within the eye.
