Paper Abstract

A number of aluminum-borate glasses has been developed for producing gradient index glasses by exchanging. Both positive and negative axial gradient were fabricated in the glasses by exchange of Li+ for Na+ and Na+ for Li+, respectively. Index change to 0.03 and gradient index Abble number larger than +100 were achieved. The diffusion coefficients of Na+ and Li+ in borate glasses were calculated by fitting the profiles of refractive index to complimentary error function.
