Abstract

The propagation of linearly polarised waves through a moving and optically active slab is studied, and the rotation of the plane of polarisation calculated. The solution presented is based on a perturbation technique, whereby terms of an order of magnitude higher than (v/c)(2) are systematically neglected.
