Paper Abstract

Some uses of polarized light in optical spectroscopy are summarized. The application of modulation techniques to the study of linear and circular dichroism is discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of currently available electro-optic and photoelastic modulators for phase modulation of light are surveyed. An example of a new phenomenon - vibrational circular dichroism - rendered observable by the development of the photoelastic modulator is presented.
