Abstract

A novel technique for measuring the relative photoelastic coefficients using Schaefer–Bergmann diffraction is introduced and applied to fused silica and α-BaB2O4. The measurements of fused silica agree with the accepted values to within 0.4%, and the α-BaB2O4 measurements are verified with results presented in this paper from the established Dixon method.
