Summary

The Kerr electro-optic constant of helium, argon and of molecular oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and deuterium have been measured at room temperature and low pressure, by using a low-frequency-modulated electric field.

Riassunto

Si riportano misure della costante elettro-ottica di Kerr per l’elio, l’argon, l’ossigeno, l’azoto, l’idrogeno ed il deuterio a temperatura ambiente ed a bassa pressione. Tali misure sono state effettuate con un campo elettrico modulato a bassa frequenza.
