Abstract

The optical properties of an isotropic optically active medium at oblique incidence have been investigated. It was found that the amount of transmitted light converted from p polarization to s polarization and vice versa, through an isotropic optically active medium, is independent of the state of incident polarization. Though the optical rotation through the optically active medium is same for p and s polarization at normal incidence, it becomes different at oblique incidences.
