Fishy Physics: Adaptation Lets Silvery Fish Reflect Light Without Polarization, May Help Them Evade Predators

ScienceDaily (Oct. 21, 2012) — Silvery fish such as herring, sardine and sprat have evolved special skin that gets around a basic law of physics, according to new research from the University of Bristol published Oct. 21 in Nature Photonics. Reflective surfaces polarize light, a phenomenon that fishermen or photographers overcome by using polarizing sunglasses […]
