Abstract
The sol-gel synthesis of materials consists of preparation of a solution homogeneous at the molecular level and solution-to-gel conversion of the solution near room temperature. This assures low temperature processing of optical materials of new compositions and various microstructures in a variety of shapes. Due to these advantages, the sol-gel method is suited for the creation and development of high technology optical solids. This paper reviews the sol-gel processing of optical materials and describes the optical solids prepared so far.
