Photosensitive PVA Polarizing Film


Article Preview

In order to analyze the polarization of Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) film, both the polarizing film and polarizing film exposed to UV light were prepared and investigated by X-ray diffractometer (XRD) and polarized UV-Visible Spectrometer. Through a series of experiments, it was found that the crystallization degree of the unirradiated PVA film was higher than that of the UV-irradiated PVA film. Furthermore, the transmittance of both unirradiated PVA film and UV-irradiated PVA film was selective, different wavelength and different polarizing angles parallelism different light transmittance.
