Paper Abstract

Refractive indices of some transparent crystals containing Li and B ions were measured in wide temperature range. They are ferroelectrics LiNbO3 and LiTaO3, laser crystals BaB2O4 and LiB3O5, and lithium tetraborate. The refractive indices were measured by the least deviation method on goniometer-spectrometer with 1.5 (DOT) 10-4 precision. Thermooptical coefficients were calculated on the basis of experimentally obtained temperature values of the refractive indices. A comparative analysis of temperature behavior of the refractive indices and the thermooptical coefficients for relative crystals of lithium niobate and lithium tantalate and also barium (beta) -borate and lithium triborate was carried out.
