Paper Abstract

A number of new improvements in the infrared optical materials, CVD zinc sulfide (ZrS) and zinc selenide (ZnSe), are discussed. These developments include the manufacture of a new water-clear ZnS with improved visible and infrared transmission, the production of a sandwich material which combines the hardness/toughness of ZnS with the infrared optical properties of ZnSe, the development of a manufacturing technique to bond wire grids to ZnS and ZnSe surfaces to provide de-icer/defogger and EMI protection, and a technique to produce small optical element arrays directly by the CVD process. Each of these new developments will be discussed and illustrated, technical issues evaluated, and current status of the technology summarized.
