Handbook of Optical Materials by Marvin J. Weber

By Marvin J. Weber

For years scientists grew to become to the CRC guide of Laser technology & know-how for trustworthy info on optical fabrics. Out of print for numerous years, that standard-setting paintings now has a successor: the instruction manual of Optical Materials.This new instruction manual is an authoritative compilation of the actual houses of fabrics utilized in all kinds of lasers and optical platforms. In it, scientist, writer, and editor Dr. Marvin J. Weber presents broad information tabulations and references for crucial optical fabrics, together with crystals, glasses, polymers, metals, drinks, and gases. The houses precise comprise either linear and nonlinear optical houses, mechanical houses, thermal houses including many extra unique houses, reminiscent of electro-, magneto-, and elasto-optic homes. utilizing at least narration and logically equipped through fabric homes, the handbook's distinct presentation simplifies the method of evaluating varied fabrics for his or her suitability particularly functions. Appendices provide a wealth of alternative helpful details, together with lists of the various abbreviations and acronyms that proliferate during this box. The instruction manual of Optical fabrics is just the main entire one-stop resource on hand for fabrics information necessary to lasers and optical platforms.

2 Physical Properties* Physical properties of optical crystals in this section are grouped into three tables: isotropic crystals, uniaxial crystals, and biaxial crystals. Materials are listed alphabetically in order of the chemical formulas. The following properties are included: Density: Data are for room temperature. Hardness: This is an empirical and relative measure of a material’s resistance to wear. Average Knoop (indentation test) hardness numbers or range of values at room temperature are given when available.

30 ff (with additions). 2(200) 8 (Mohs) – – – 8 (Mohs) – – – – 1 (Mohs) . 5–3 (Mohs) Cleavage Solubility (ºC) plane (g/100 g H2O) (001)-p – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – (1010)-p (0001)-i – – – – – – – (101)-p .

The imperfect cleavage plane means that the crack does not easily move along the plane, although a small area of oriented flat surfaces may form along the cracking surface when the crystal is fractured. Solubility : Solubility is defined as the weight loss in grams per 100 grams of water. The dissolution temperature in °C is included in parentheses, if given. If the solubility is less than 10-3 g/100 g, the material is generally considered to be insoluble. If a crystal is listed as insoluble, it means that, when submerged in water with a reasonable amount of time (a day or so), no noticeable loss of weight nor visible surface erosion of the crystal is observed.
