This talk will address the ideas of intelligent material design when applied to infrared-transparent glasses. By using literature data as a jumping-off point, glass properties can be reduced to mathematical equations whose simultaneous solution results in a material with specifically targeted optical properties such as index and dispersion, as well as targeted mechanical properties such as glass transition temperature and coefficient of thermal expansion. Using this design approach eliminates the need for the scattershot trial-and-error method by which novel chalcogenide glass compositions are currently designed. Examples relevant to current infrared optical systems and their SWaP reduction will be discussed.
