Condon's model on optical rotatory power and causality - a scientific trifle

Kristensson, Gerhard LU (1999) In Technical Report LUTEDX/(TEAT-7080)/1-23/(1999) TEAT-7080.
Abstract
In this paper some of the consequences of the model for optical activity suggested

by Condon are analyzed. The scattering problem is solved for a semiinfinite

and a finite homogeneous slab, respectively. Specifically, the noncausal

effects of this model are demonstrated. These effects are disturbingly

large for many materials and the model has to be discarded as unphysical.

The rotation of the polarization plane is shown to agree with the fixed frequency

results when the transient part of the solution has died out. Moreover,

a new delta sequence that is associated with the Fresnel integrals is analyzed.
