Using conventional materials like fused silica and sapphire for critical window components in a high-power laser system can lead to intolerable thermal distortions and optical path difference effects. A new oxyfluoride glass is being developed which has the unique property of possessing a negative thermo-optic coefficient (dn/dT) in the near- and mid-wave infrared. Specifically, the refractive index (n) of oxyfluoride glass decreases as the temperature increases. The distortions caused by…

The effect of TiO2 thin film on AC electrical properties of Nano porous silicon substrate

The AC electrical behaviour of nano porous silicon (PSi) with TiO2 thin films was examined over the range of frequency 10 2 to 10 5 Hz. Porous silicon (PSi) layers were obtained by electrochemical

Progress toward an athermal HEL optical window

Progress in the development phases of a new optical material that exhibits very low thermal lensing and robustness against thermal shock will be reported. Material, thermal, and optical properties of

The nondestructive measurement of refractive index of transmissive materials using null polarimetry is simple, accurate and does not require much on sample preparation. In null polarimetry, the

Ellipsometric Characterization Of Optical Constants For Transparent Materials

Ellipsometric parameters v and A for glass samples were measured at multiple angles of incidence using an infrared ellipsometer in the null mode. The Fresnel equations were fit to the data using a

Properties of Optical and Laser-Related Materials

This book presents a very concise compilation of physical parameters of many `classical' and `novel' optical materials, laser-active ones included. Until now, there has been no comparable data source

Simple high-precision extinction method for measuring refractive index of transparent materials

Linearly polarized light remains linearly polarized after reflection from a transparent material at oblique incidence. The reflected polarization angle is determined from the extinction position of

Interspecimen Comparison of the Refractive Index of Fused Silica

The index of refraction of optical quality fused silica (SiO2) was determined for 60 wavelengths from 0.21 to 3.71 μ at 20°C. The dispersion equation

Accurate null polarimetry for measuring the refractive index of transparent materials

Simple null polarimetry is introduced to measure the refractive index n of transparent and semitransparent materials. For a linearly polarized incident light, the reflected polarization can be used
