Paper Abstract

The previously published calculations for λo, the wavelength where the material dispersion parameter is zero, have been extended in two directions. First, the calculation of mixed glass compositions shows that the intermediate values are not linear with composition but show significant and non-symmetrical deviations. Second, it has now been possible to calculate the material dispersion slope, that is (λ/c)(d3n/dλ3), at λo. Large and important variations are found, both between the oxide and halide systems, as well as within them.
