Skab I., Vasylkiv Yu., Savaryn V. and Vlokh R.

We have derived the relations describing optical indicatrix changes appearing in crystals of all the point symmetry groups for the different geometries of application of torque moment and light propagation directions. 

Keywords: piezooptic effect, torsion stress
