Paper Abstract

The temperature dependences of the optical birefringence (delta) ((Delta) n) in (MgGeF6)(DOT)6H2O crystals have been investigated. Observed specific properties such as global hysteresis, kinetic effect, thermooptic memory effect, localization of the incommensurability wave vector on the commensurate values of higher order, sensibility to the external mechanical stress confirm existence of the incommensurate phase in (MgGeF6)(DOT)6H2O crystals.
