Paper Abstract

Aluminum oxynitride (ALON) is a polycrystalline ceramic material useful for windows, domes, and other optical elements. It is transparent in the visible to mid-wavelength infrared. Data is presented on the affects of impacts with sand and water particles on polished surfaces. Velocities up to 690 m/sec were used.
