Experimental study of polarizability dispersion for various haloforms is conducted using refractive index measurements. The results are compared with those calculated from ab initio time-dependent coupled perturbed Hartree-Fock theory with a basis set that includes semidiffuse functions. For the wavelengths of study between 457.9 and 694 nm, a satisfactory agreement between the theoretical and experimental results is found.
