Abstract
Large single crystals, up to 200 mm in diameter, of high optical quality germanium have been grown by the Czochralski technique. Post-growth thermal treatment improves the optical homogeneity and reduces optical losses, as shown by measurements of refractive index gradients and modulation transfer function (MTF). A new approach for the piecewise combination of interferograms, as well as a polychromatic treatment of MTF, is presented.
