New production methods of silica aerogel with high and low refractive indices have been developed. A very slow shrinkage of alcogel at room temperature has made possible producing aerogel with high refractive indices of up to 1.265 without cracks. Even higher refractive indices than 1.08, the transmission length of the aerogel obtained from this technique has been measured to be about 10 to 20 mm at 400 nm wave length. A mold made of alcogel which endures shrinkage in the supercritical drying…

Optical and Radiographical Characterization of Silica Aerogel for Cherenkov Radiator
We present optical and X-ray radiographical characterization of silica aerogels with refractive index from 1.05 to 1.07 for a Cherenkov radiator. A novel pin-drying method enables us to produce
Microstructure control of the silica aerogels via pinhole drying
Pinhole drying process is a slowly dryness in the air caused by capillary force. It was found useful to improve the transparency of silica aerogel. So in this work, pinhole drying was considered as a
