The Skin of a Soap Bubble

An illustration showing how beautiful dynamic colours are produced on the skin of a soap bubble.

The concept of Polarised Light Microscopy

An illustration I made for my most recent exhibition at TUDublin, depicting the physical theory behind polarised light microscopy.

Undergraduate experiments from the senior laboratory in the School of Physics at TUDublin

Apparatus for the quantum mechanical Berries Phase experiment. A plane polarised light beam is focus into a single mode fiber wound in a helix. The polarisation of the light emerging from the output is measured and its intensity quantified with a photodiode detector.

Apparatus for Polarisation of Light experiment. Plane polarised light is directed into a birefringent sample and the angle of optical rotation is measured with a second polariser called an analyser.

An ellipsometer is used to measure the state of polarisation of light reflected from the surface of a material through an angular sweep.
