In the Philosophical Transactions for 1816, I have described at great length the various phenomena which are exhibited by glass and other substances to which the property of double refraction has been communicated by heat, by rapid cooling, by evaporation, or by mechanical compression and dilatation. In pursuing the same subject, I have observed many singular facts respecting the developement of new axes, by a change in the form and condition of the plates; and by submitting the phenomena to accurate measurement, I have succeeded in determining the laws which regulate the distribution of the polarising force. A brief account of these results will form the subject of the following paper.
