Sammanfattning

In this paper some of the consequences of the model for optical activity suggested
by Condon are analyzed. The scattering problem is solved for a semiinfinite
and a finite homogeneous slab, respectively. Specifically, the noncausal
effects of this model are demonstrated. These effects are disturbingly
large for many materials and the model has to be discarded as unphysical.
The rotation of the polarization plane is shown to agree with the fixed frequency
results when the transient part of the solution has died out. Moreover,
a new delta sequence that is associated with the Fresnel integrals is analyzed.
