Explanation:
I'm not quite sure what level of explanation you want here.

A refractive index detector, also known as a differential refractometer, is a device that measures the refractive index of a substance (the degree to which light is refracted, that is, "bent", when it passes through the substance), and specifically compares the refractivity of an analyte (substance being analysed) with that of the solvent. In other words, it's a device that detects the presence of a given substance in chromatography.

RID-10A is simply the name of the particular model of refractive index detector being used. RID obviously stands for Refractive Index Detector. It's made by Shimadzu Scientific Instruments.
