Abstract

This study proposes a method for measuring the concentration of solutions. By utilizing the characteristic of polarization by internal reflection, the phase difference between the p- and s-polarized lights varies significantly with the concentration of a solution. This can greatly increase the measurement resolution. Furthermore, using circularly polarized heterodyne interferometry ensures that this method is simple to implement, highly accurate, and affords high resolution. The feasibility of this method was demonstrated experimentally and the concentration measurement resolution is about 0.52 mg/ml.
