Cutting-edge recommendations for yielding top of the range chalcogenide glasses

This pioneering paintings describes the know-how, constructed over a 50-year interval, to make use of chalcogenide glasses as infrared optical fabrics. equipment for qualitatively deciding on chalcogenide glass compositions and generating high-purity homogeneous glass are discussed.

Chalcogenide Glasses for Infrared Optics contains certain creation suggestions built during the author's paintings at either Texas tools (TI) and Amorphous fabrics, Inc. (AMI). The construction of vacuum drift zoned silicon, gallium arsenide, and cadmium telluride, all helpful in infrared expertise, is defined. The booklet highlights examples of ways glass composition might be replaced to augment a selected property.

Coverage includes:

  • Transmission of sunshine through solids
  • Physical homes of chalcogenide glasses
  • Glass production
  • Careful characterization of glass properties
  • Conventional lens fabrication--spherical surfaces
  • Molding of unconventional aspheric lenses with diffractive surfaces
  • Glass strategies for different applications
  • IR imaging bundles made of chalcogenide glass fibers
  • Production of infrared crystalline fabrics at AMI
  • Development of an automated ellipsometer procedure at TI
