The general theory of the Kerr effect is explained using the principles of classical optics and molecular structure. Possible applications of the Kerr effect are suggested, and experiments dealing with its use as a light filter are described.
A theory about the conduction mechanism of nitrobenzene is presented, and an active circuit element using nitrobenzene is suggested.
Experiments deal with the preparation and use of bentonite-water suspensions as a Kerr-effect medium are described.
