We present physical properties data for a number of liquids currently being used for cooling and/or index matching of components in high peak power, low repetition rate Nd: glass laser systems. Liquids examined include saturated water solutions of ZnCl2 and ZnBr2, TCP, benzene, DMSO, glycerol, ethylene glycol, FC-104, Dow-Corning 710, and Cargille 5040 and 5610. Thermal properties (conductivity, diffusivity), mechanical properties (viscosity, density), chemical properties (pH, materials compatibility), and optical properties (refractive index, Abbé value, nonlinear index, dn/dT, optical transparency) are tabulated and compared to projected liquid properties requirements for high repetition rate systems.
