Polarized Light Rotation experiment


• Metallic scaled optical bench with 5 mounted.
• Semiconductor Laser with holder.
• Polarizer with holder.
• Sample tube.
• Holder for tube.
• Analyzer with holder.
• Photo detector.

• Cables.


• In this experiment, we can study optical rotation of some substances and to measure angle of rotation.
• To measure specific rotation of optical rotatory substance and density of optical rotatory substance to be measured.
• To find out if the optical rotatory substance is of right hand or left hand rotation.
• To get know the production and detecting method of circular and elliptically polarized light.
• To verify Malus law.
