The manual polarimeter P1000-LED
Manual polarimetry by all means still has its place in smaller laboratories and in training. With the manual polarimeter P1000-LED, the A.KRÃSS Optronic range provides a classic traditional instrument that no analytical collection should be without.
The robust device is constructed on a metal stand. It works according to the half-shade principle and can take tubes up to 220 mm long. It is read using the eyepiece with two vernier scales. Despite the classic construction with polariser and analyser, the P1000-LED is thoroughly up-to-date.
A light diode serves as a light source, which gives off light in the sodium D line with a 589 nm wavelength and which has very low power consumption compared to your sodium vapour lamp due to 500 times longer durability.
Almost no other instrument is as suitable as the P1000-LED for gaining initial experience with polarimetry and familiarising oneself with the area. The P1000-LED not only has its place in training, however. Laboratories in which polarimetric tests take place rarely, such as physics laboratories or laboratory benches in pharmacies, should also have them.
