Paper Abstract

The requirement of not just survival but high performance operation in a hostile environment is a fundamental consideration in some optical systems. The paper details the effects of -- and compensation for -- deep-sea immersion, variable air-pressure and humidity, and a variety of thermal perturbations. The deleterious effects on optical materials resulting from a selection of hostile environments, including that of high radiation levels, are also considered and suggestions made concerning the optimum choice of materials.
