Paper Abstract

Athermal optical glasses for the tasks of optoelectronics synthesized in various glass systems and referring to various regions of Abbe diagram have been considered. As a main criterion in estimation of athermal character of glasses thermooptical constant is used and for laser glasses P and Q, as well. In connection with a vigorous development of optoelectronics, the requirements to the optical glass have been significantly extended. There was a need in glasses to operate in the short-wavelength UV region of spectrum and IR region, glasses operating in a broad temperature range, glasses with a specific trend of the dispersion curve, glasses with laser properties, light-sensitive properties etc. In fact, it is impossible to confine only to the Abbe diagram, where glasses in "n- " coordinates are represented. At present, we have to deal with several types of such diagrams. One of them is a diagram with the arrangement of glasses, which enable to interprete the decreased wave front distorsions in optical pieces under the impact of thermal loads, the so-called athermal glasses.
