Apparatus for Polarisation of Light experiment. Plane polarised light is directed into a birefringent sample and the angle of optical rotation is measured with a second polariser called an analyser.

An ellipsometer is used to measure the state of polarisation of light reflected from the surface of a material through an angular sweep.
