26 February 1982 Thermal Shock Testing Of Optical Ceramics
Author Affiliations +
A summary is presented of the various techniques for measuring the resistance to failure from thermal stresses of optical ceramics - glasses, polycrystalline ceramics and composites. This includes lengthy discussion of the more popular and more useful test techniques and recommendations for use of these tests and other techniques for treating problems with thermally induced stresses in optical materials and components.
