Abstract:

This is the third triannual report describing the research and development leading to fabrication of fiber-optic faceplates for cathode ray tubes with high transmission in the near- and middle-ultraviolet spectral regions. The current program is, primarily, to evaluate existing optical glasses and develop improved ones suitable for meeting specific performance requirements. Formulation studies of new glasses containing La2O3, Gd2O3, Yb2O3, Lu2O3 and Rb2O were continued. Raw materials of different grades were investigated and the effect of such impurities as Co, Ni, Cr, Cu, Sm, and Pr on spectral transmission determined. In addition, density, refractive index, softening point and absorption coefficients were measured. Author
