The temperature dependence of the Kerr constant for water has been determined over the range 19 °C-45 °C at a wavelength of 658 nm. This paper presents the experimental arrangement used for this purpose and the data obtained, for which a polynomial fit is provided. A formula is also suggested to help estimate the variation of the Kerr constant for water with both temperature and wavelength.
