Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n12 p1692-1693 Dec 2011
Optical activity using an iPad as a source of polarized light is demonstrated. A sample crystal or solution can be placed on the iPad running a white screen app. The sample is viewed through a polarized filter that can be rotated. This setup can be used in the laboratory or with a document camera to easily project in a large lecture hall. (Contains 3 figures.)
