Paper Abstract

The aim of this work is to show how to determine the refractive indices and the direction of the optical axis in uniaxial prisms. The method is based on: the measurement of minimum deviation angles, to apply the symmetry between incident and emergent rays in that condition and the measurement of the inclination of the extraordinary spectral lines in respect to the ordinary ones.
