Summary The refractive indices of two nematogens, 4-methoxy-benzylidene-4 prime -n-butylaniline (MBBA) and 4-n-pentyl-4 prime -cyanobiphenyl (5CB), were measured throughout their nematic ranges at pressures up to 2 kbar and temperatures up to 70 degree C in the first substance and up to 5 kbar and 145 degree C in the second. Measurements were made at lambda equals 5,890 A, using a sensitive interference fringe technique. Results are presented in the form of functions n//e(P, T) for the extraordinary index and n//o (P, T) for the ordinary index, obtained by least squares fits to the experimental data.
