[* icon_note] Ever wonder what a polarizing film does? Join us for '''Science with iFixit''' as we shine some light on the inner workings of an LCD and why they need a polarizing film.film:
[* black] To startFirst, the backlight shoots light through a thin layer of liquid crystals. As the light passes through it's reflected at different angles by the crystals' orientation.
[* black] These angles are what determineThe angle of reflection determines the color of the light we see. In order to change the angle (and by extension theextension, color) wethe display hardware must apply a voltage across the liquid crystals that causes them to change their orientation.
