A 90°polarization rotator for use at 347 nm was constructed and successfully tested at peak intensities in excess of 15 MW cm-2. This liquid optical rotatory device (LORD) employs aqueous solutions of sucrose to rotate the plane of polarization of the incident beam, may be tuned to other incident wavelengths, and should be widely useful for applications involving both tunable dye lasers and high-power lasers.
