An analysis of experiments included the contribution of the fused silica cuvette, resulting in an overestimate of the reported for carbon disulfide () . Here we give the corrected values for by subtracting the measured total nonlinear refraction contribution of the empty cuvette from the data with it filled. The value obtained for of the fused silica cuvette (two 1 mm-thick walls) agrees with the accepted literature value . The result of this correction on the beam deflection measurement is a value of for . We reproduce Figs. 4–6 with this correction and include the corrected Table 1. The data in Fig. 6(b) was corrected using the dispersion of of fused silica from . The SOS model has also been re-fitted following Ref. , as shown in Fig. 6(b) and Table 2. While the model reproduces the trend, it underestimates by a factor of 2.4, which is most likely due to the neglect of higher-lying absorption bands.
