Abstract : The optical rotatory power of crystals is dependent on both temperature and pressure. The principal contribution to the variation of optical rotatory power is due the volume change of the crystal. The change of rotatory power with pressure and temperature is due to the change of the absorption spectrum of the crystal. The principal contribution to the variation of optical rotatory power with pressure and temperature is attributed to a parameter which is present in the phenomenon of optical rotatory power but not present in the related phenomenon of ordinary refraction of light.
