Abstract:

Crystals of zinc sulfide containing up to 3 atomic percent of nickel were grown by chemical vapor transport using iodine as the transport agent. It was found that these crystals had the same long-wavelength IR transmission characteristics as pure ZnS. Furthermore, the addition of small amounts of nickel significantly increased the hardness of ZnS. These materials may be useful for the development of IR windows in the 8-12 micrometer range.
