NEW HIGH TEMPERATURE INFRARED TRANSMITTING GLASSES
TEXAS INSTRUMENTS INC DALLAS
Results obtained in the qualitative evaluation of glasses from seven IVA-VA-VIA ternary systems as high temperature infrared window materials are given. Four-component glasses formed from two ternary systems were prepared and characterized. The pertinent physical and physical properties of non-oxide chalcogenide glasses are summarized. Several specific glass compositions were fabricated in large pieces so that their optical and related physical properties could be accurately measured. The properties of a glass are determined by their constituent elements. The ratios between the constituent elements, and thus the location of the glass-forming region, are found to depend on the binary compounds which form between the constituent elements.
