Abstract
For many years composite structures have been the building blocks of materials with specialized mechanical properties but only recently have related ideas been used successfully to develop new optical materials. A particular example to be described is hot pressed zinc sulphide, dispersion hardened with diamond particles for extreme IR window applications. It shows increased toughness over pure ZnS without loss of transmission in the 10 gm wavelength region. In addition to its practical benefits, this simple system has turned out to be extremely useful for identifying the important dynamical features underlying the optical properties of all transparent composites and complex dielectrics. One result of our far it measurements is the discovery of a generalized Lyddane-Sachs-Teller relation for solids and liquids.
