Chalcogenide Glasses for Infrared Optics by A. Ray Hilton PDF

By A. Ray Hilton

Cutting-edge suggestions for yielding top quality chalcogenide glasses

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

Chalcogenide Glasses for Infrared Optics contains particular construction strategies built in the course of the author's paintings at either Texas tools (TI) and Amorphous fabrics, Inc. (AMI). The construction of vacuum go with the flow zoned silicon, gallium arsenide, and cadmium telluride, all helpful in infrared expertise, is defined. The publication highlights examples of the way glass composition could be replaced to reinforce a specific property.

Coverage includes:

  • Transmission of sunshine by means of 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 tactics for different applications
  • IR imaging bundles made of chalcogenide glass fibers
  • Production of infrared crystalline fabrics at AMI
  • Development of an automated ellipsometer method at TI
