Very little has been written concerning the theory of the metallurgical polarization microscope. Records of metallurgical studies utilizing this instrument are widely scattered among the literature, and are mostly material of an uncoordinated and irrelevant nature. It is the feeling of the author that a coordinated investigation of the metallurgical applications of polarized light will yield results providing the metallurgist with another means for the study of metals and their properties.
