Title: Kerr constants of some mineral and silicone oils

Abstract

Measurements were made of the Kerr constants of several mineral and silicone oils. The results indicate that these oils can be used to improve the sensitivity of measurements of the quadratic electro-optical effect in crystals. The possibility of using the electro-optical Kerr response of oils to determine experimentally the distribution of the electric field in high-voltage devices is discussed. (laser applications and other topics in quantum electronics)
