Cutting-edge thoughts for yielding fine quality chalcogenide glasses

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

Chalcogenide Glasses for Infrared Optics comprises specified creation options constructed throughout the author's paintings at either Texas tools (TI) and Amorphous fabrics, Inc. (AMI). The creation of vacuum glide zoned silicon, gallium arsenide, and cadmium telluride, all precious in infrared expertise, is defined. The e-book highlights examples of the way glass composition will be replaced to augment a specific property.

Coverage includes:

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