In this paper the effects of mechanical stress on the refractive, absorptive and the rotatory properties of crystals have been considered with particular emphasis on the role of crystal symmetry. Stress-induced optical activity and the photoelastic behaviour of transparent, weakly absorbing and metallic crystals have been discussed. Piezooptia of polycrystalline media has also been briefly dealt with.
