The article focuses on refractive index of particles which is based on the speed of light through vacuum and through the material. Topics discussed include use of optical crystallography by specialists for identification of particles, dark appearance of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) particles with respect to its refractive index, and information on refractive index of liquids like benzene and cedarwood oil.

    The unit-cell parameters and the spatial symmetry of RbKSO4 crystals are determined. The temperature and spectral dependences of the refractive indices and birefringence of these crystals are measured. Two first-order phase transitions are found to occur at 116 and 820 K, and the occurrence of...
