Paper Abstract

A new, and potentially very important, class of crystals, the mercurous halides were synthesized about a decade ago by Barta in Czechoslovakia. Mercurous chloride, Hg2C12, is the most highly developed of these, and its photo-elastic properties were described by Silvestrova2 in the Soviet Union. This crystal possesses certain unique acousto-optic properties, making it highly desirable for certain signal processing applications requiring very long delay Bragg cells.
