Refractive Index – RI Measurement of Solids & Films

Refractive Index – RI Measurement of Solids & Films

RI Measurement of Solids and Films. RI measurement of solids and semi-solids is useful in labs for monitoring quality to insure consistency of transparency, pigmentation, or batch quality. RI might be measured on incoming materials or finished products. Highly accurate measurements are possible with the right refractometer and a method to measure the material. Instrument:

Refractometer Uses in Industry and Selection

Refractometer Uses in Industry and Selection By Angelo DePalma, PHD A refractometer characterizes fluids based on their refractive index –the refraction occurs due to the change in the speed of light as it travels through a material of one density to one of different density. By definition a vacuum has a refractive index of 1,
