Paper Abstract

The goal of the present paper is to find a connection between time-point of fat tissue removal out of a human organism, rotation angle of polarization plane and optical transmission as well. The authors determined experimentally that in vitro fat tissue rotates polarization plane of linearly polarized light at temperature of 24 °C. At that as left- and right-rotation of polarization plane is observed. Value of rotation angle rises proportionally in time of in vitro specimen keeping up. The authors defined a connection of this phenomenon to features of polymorphous structure of a fat tissue.
