 Title: THE KERR EFFECT IN THE VICINITY OF ABSORPTION TRANSITIONS OF NEAR SYMMETRIC TOP MOLECULES Creators: Buckingham, A. D.; Brown, J. M.; Ramsay, D. A. Issue Date: 1968 Publisher: Ohio State University Abstract: The theory of the Kerr effect in the region of absorption transitions is extended to cover symmetric top and near symmetric top molecules. The signal magnitude depends on the molecular dipole moments in and the transition moment between the two states involved. Experimental methods of detecting and separating the signals arising from electric birefringence and dichromism are considered and exemplified by experimental studies of the $3390 {\AA}$ and band of formaldehyde.
