Paper Abstract

In this paper, the methods of preparation of Ge-Se-Sb glasses with low impurity content were developed, and a large Ge-Sb-Se glass rod (φ85×80mm) with good quality was obtained. The physical and optical properties of the glass were measured. The optical homogeneity (Δn) at 2μm at different places inside the same bulk was less ±2×10-4. In order to accurately evaluate the infrared resolution of our prepared glass, a lens of f 19mm F/#1.3 was used to evalue its modulation transfer function (MTF) performance. The MTF value at 20cycles/mm for 20°C was 0.52. The area under MTF curve covers 82.466% of the image space, and has a value of 21.8 cycles/mm.
