Abstract:

The report details efforts expended toward achieving a means for measuring the stress optical coefficients of both homogeneous and inhomogeneous laser glass test specimens. The design of a 3-pinhole interferometer is discussed and tests made are presented. Elastic properties are briefly treated as is information on glass sample preparation. Finally, a theoretical analysis of the three pinhole interferometer is appended.
