6H30.30 - Optically Active Corn Syrup
Demonstrate the optically active cornsyrup with polarization cards and a light source.
Corn syrup is optically active. This means that when polarized light passes through an active medium, the orientation of polarization rotates.
The colorful spirals (between green and red are because the polarization rotation does not rotate different wavelengths at the same rate, causing dispersion.
