The theory of optical birefringence

Abstract:

The theory of optical birefringence is discussed from the point of view of the scattering of polarized photons by molecules using the framework of formal scattering theory and quantum electrodynamics.

In Part One, those features from noncovariant quantum electrodynamics relevant to the molecular scattering of photons are reviewed. Chapter One contains an outline of classical electrodynamics in the Coulomb gauge, including the Stokes parameter and density matrix formulations of polar...
