Abstract : The effect of birefringence of a polymer film upon its photographic light scattering pattern is considered for the case of a single anisotropic two-dimensional spherulite imbedded in a birefringent matrix. It is shown that for the case of a polarizer and analyzer crossed at +45 deg. and -45 deg. to the analyzer the scattering pattern is modified in a manner agreeing with experimental observation.
