Paper Abstract

The materials community realized that zinc sulfide (ZnS) was an important optical material for infrared windows over forty years ago. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) quickly became the method of choice for producing large ZnS windows and domes. In addition to the development initiated in the United States, several international efforts for understanding the processing and properties of CVD ZnS are notable. This paper summarizes the published history of non-U.S. CVD ZnS development including the significant efforts in the United Kingdom, the former Soviet Union, Israel, China, and Japan.
