Paper Abstract

Optical properties, especially refractive index, dispersion, and transmission, are discussed by glass family. The uniqueness of these properties is determined by the composition; an understanding of which makes evident why there often must be a compromise between the desired optical properties and undesirable secondary properties such as size limitations, glass quality, workability, and chemical resistance.
