heal.abstract In spite of the many books written on photoelasticity, the optical system of the polariscopes used has received little attention. This paper describes the investigation carried out for the construction of the new polariscope at University College, London. The uniformity of illumination of the optical field and the sharpness of the isochromatics are two indispensable conditions for a good polariscope. Their fulfilment depends on the size of the light source, on the sizes, focal lengths and respective positions of the condenser, collector and camera lenses, and finally on the thickness of the specimen. The necessary relations between these factors are determined and may be applied in choosing the components of a polariscope according to its intended use. Finally, a discussion on the need for a strongly illuminated field, as well as of a sharp image, shows that a compact and intense source is needed. en
