WHAT DOES POLARIMETER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

polarimeter

Polarimeter

A polarimeter is a scientific instrument used to measure the angle of rotation caused by passing polarized light through an optically active substance. Some chemical substances are optically active, and polarized light will rotate either to the left or right when passed through these substances. The amount by which the light is rotated is known as the angle of rotation.

Definition of polarimeter in the English dictionary

The definition of polarimeter in the dictionary is an instrument for measuring the amount of polarization of light.
