Abstract

We have found that torsion mechanical stresses induce the optical rotation effect in centrosymmetric NaBi(MoO4)2 crystals. We have suggested a description of the effect on the basis of nonlocal linear elasticity theory. It has been shown that the induced optical gyration is proportional to the stress gradient appearing due to the torsion.
