The initiation of a joint theoretical and experimental program on the preparation, characterization, and evaluation of IR Window Materials is reported. During this first quarter of operation, most of the activity has been design and fabrication of facilities for the program. Preliminary results regarding the characterization of point defects in CdS and CdTe by tracer self diffusion and high temperature Hall mobility techniques have been obtained. Other areas in which preliminary investigations have been carried out include closed tube chemical vapor growth of GaAs samples, measurements of thermal shock and ductility of alkali halide samples, and theoretical analyses of IR absorption mechanisms. The authors also report the completion of a general two dimensional computer code for the analysis of optical properties of IR windows.
