4 June 2013 Infrared-transmitting glass-ceramics: a review
Author Affiliations +
A large body of literature was reviewed with the aim of identifying binary and ternary systems for producing long-wave infrared transmitting glass-ceramics for window applications. Known optical and physical property data was summarized for many ternary sulfides as well as their constituent binary sulfides. Some phosphide and arsenide chalcopyrite structures were reviewed as well. Where available, data on the transmission range, energy gap, refractive index, and hardness were tabulated. Several glass-forming systems were identified containing Ga2S3, GeS2, or As2S3.
