Dimensional stability of fused silica, Invar, and several ultralow thermal expansion materials.

Abstract

This Letter summarizes recent measurements, published in detail in another journal, which are of interest for extremely stable structures such as telescopes and optical resonators. A number of materials are presently available whose dimensions are exceedingly stable against temperature changes. These include Owens-Illinois Cervit, Corning ULE, Schott… (More)
