Paper Abstract

The development of infrared optical materials is always closely related to the research and exploration of material science. The infrared optical domes bears shock and produces stress when the infrared optical domes mounted on the missile moving at a high speed is shocked by high temperature. According to aerodynamics theory and thermo shock theory, the surge current will be transferred to optical parts through holding up layer and warms the surface of optical parts when infrared optical parts are shocked by high temperature. A compress stress is formed on the hot external surface of optical parts forms and a tension stress is formed on the internal surface or optical parts under the circumstance of the edge of optical parts being fixed. The windows of optical parts become curvature radius of lens with the function of pressure difference which can cause aberration change. The brittle fracture of material will be caused if peak stress is beyond the strength which is permitted for infrared materials. Therefore, limits to design of windows thickness is proposed in this paper.
