Electromagnetic wave propagation in an inhomogeneous medium is discussed in the context of light propagation in a fluid near its critical point, stratified under gravity.The system exhibits birefringence, where the transverse electrical and the transverse magnetic waves travel with different phase-velocities, depending upon the d.-gradients with height set up in the system. The possibility of experiment detecting the predicted phenomenon is also discussed.
