The author presents the results of the measurements of the three independent electrostriction coefficients of LiF, NaF, NaCl, KCl, KBr, RbCl, RbBr and RbI. Measurements have been carried out with a double Michelson interferometer to ensure a high reliability. The values of the electrostriction coefficients presented here differ significantly from values reported earlier. The measured differences could be due to the use of an improved measurement set-up.
