The concept of using a parametric representation of wavelength rather than actual wavelength in a polynomial relating wavelength to refractive index is applied to a wide range of IR materials. Excellent agreement between calculated and published measurements of index is found. With such data it is possible to design lenses which are well-corrected with wavelength and temperature.
