BIREFRINGENCE FLAME This microscopic photo shows the birefringence colour on a Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) device. Birefringence is when light passing through a crystal is split into two different waves of light, resulting in the beautiful colours you can see in this image. A LCoS device is similar to an LCD (Liquid Crystal TV and video Displays), except an LCoS is also reflective, resulting in a very high resolution. This image demonstrates how the birefringence properties of crystals can be used to refract light, creating a colourful and sharp image on our TV screens, making the fake tans on TOWIE glow more than ever before...
