Abstract:

The stress-optic coefficients have been determined at 10.6 micrometers and 22 C for single crystal KCl and BaF2, for polycrystalline CaF2 and CdTe, and for the chalcogenide glasses TI-1120 and 1173. The method employed consists in inducing a birefringence in the isotropic specimen and determining the coefficients from a measure of the resulting phase retardation. Author
