Abstract:

Data obtained as part of the optical Materials Characterization Program are summarized in this report. Room temperature values of refractive index as a function of wavelength are presented for the following materials commercially grown KCl, reactive atmosphere processed RAP KCl, KCl nominally doped with 1.5 KI, hot forged CaF , fusion cast CaF2, CaF2 doped with Er 0.001 to 3 Er, SrF , chemical vapor deposited CVD ZnSe 2 specimens, and ZnS CVD, 2 specimens. Data for the thermooptic constant dndT and the linear thermal expansion coefficient are given for the following materials over the temperature range -180 to 200 deg C Al2O3, BaF2, CaF2, CdF2, KBr, KCl, LiF, MgF2, NaCl, NaF, SrF2, ZnS CVD, and ZnSe CVD. The piezooptic constants of the following materials are presented As2S3 glass, CaF2, BaF2, Ge, KCl, fused SiO2, SrF2, a chalcogenide glass Ge 33, As 12, Se 55 and ZnSe CVD.
