Paper Abstract

This report will describe the status of an effort to catalog the refractive index, absorption, reflectance and transmittance of selected IR transmitting materials over the wavelength range from 1 to 1000 microns, and at temperatures from 300 to about 2 K. Data are presented for LiF, CaF2, BaF2, KBr, and TlBr, as well as for KRS-5 (TlBr-I) and KRS-6 (TlBr-Cl). A cryooptical measurements facility at NASA-Goddard, which has been used to generate some of the cataloged data, is also described.
