Previous measurements of quadratic electrooptic coefficients in the KDP family of crystals have been analyzed. In addition, the quadratic electrooptic coefficient no3g1111-ne3g3311 of KDP and ADP has been measured by means of the dynamic polarimetric method. The results obtained confirm that quadratic electrooptic coefficients of KDP-type crystals are of the order of magnitude of 10-20 m2V2. This is about 100 times smaller than values widely cited in the literature obtained by other authors employing the static polarimetric technique.
