Physical Properties of Crystals

Abstract

The ellipticity and azimuth of light transmitted through an optically active plate and the intensity of this light transmitted through an analyzer are theoretically investigated as functions of the rotation angle of the plate. Relationships describing these parameters are considered. It is demonstrated that, depending on the angle of inclination of the plate, the optical activity can affect the characteristics of the transmitted light differently. A technique for determining the optical activity parameters is proposed from analyzing the relationships for the light intensity. The conoscopic figures of uniaxial and biaxial optically active crystals are described.
