A new optical interferometric technique to measure the electrostrictive coefficients of XH2PO4/H3BO3 binaries (where X=Na, K and NH4) is reported. This direct method is found to be advantageous in measuring the positive as well as the negative sign of the electrostrictive coefficients. Design of the apparatus and its merits are discussed. In XH2PO4/H3BO3 binaries the addition of boric acid is found to decrease the value of binary electrostriction coefficient in comparison to their pure samples.
