### A level physics practical - polarisation of microwaves

This simple demonstration shows how plane polarised microwaves respond to rotating a filter (metal strips attached to plastic) through 90⁰.

The experiment can be extended by measuring the intensity of microwaves detected by the receiver at different filter angles and so showing Malus’s law.
