Paper Abstract

Methods of measuring the thermal variation of the refractive index, an = (1/n)(dn/dT) are reviewed. A comparison is made between various prism and interferometric methods. A double interferometric method utilizing simultaneous Fizeau and Twyman-Green interferometers is discussed in detail. Data on KDP isomorphs are presented for comparison.
