Illustration for article titled Question:

When viewing auto glass through a polarized lense or filter, one can often see a slight check pattern on the glass. What causes this?


This is most apparent with sunglasses or watching professionally shot car films. The contrast of the pattern shifts as the polarization angle rotates. I see it on the rear window and windshield but never on the side windows. Could it be the lamination layer?
