Paper Abstract

The use of transmissive optics in directed-energy systems require the knowledge of (1) the real and complex index of refraction, (2) the index and the temperature coefficient of index over the wavelength and temperature ranges for which a system is being designed, and (3) the effect of high-energy optical and nuclear radiation on both the real and complex index of refraction. This paper addresses the current needs for the characterization of transmissive-optical materials and discusses the problems and possible solution involved with meeting these needs.
