The quantum analysis of the polar atom under the action of a mechanical load is presented in this work. The obtained solution can be used to describe the optical properties of the Cosserat medium in the form of the gyro-birefringence. Rayleigh scattering of laser light coming towards the Cosserat medium head is analysed to measure the rotation of the azimuth of polarisation associated with couple stresses.
