Paper Abstract

Abnormal dispersive liquids have proven quite useful in the design of apochromatic optical systems for the visible and ultraviolet spectral regions. Furthermore, liquids with extended ultraviolet transmission can be very useful in the design of optical systems for use in the ultraviolet, whether or not they are abnormally dispersive. The results of investigations into optical properties of several liquids transparent in the ultraviolet are presented. Intense UV irradiation of the liquids was found to produce changes in both the UV transmission and refractive index. Methods of preventing these changes through the addition of a special chemical were investigated. The optical property measurements were made at the Vavilov State Optical Institute, St. Petersburg, Russia in collaboration with the Lockheed Palo Alto Research Laboratory, Palo Alto, California.
