Paper Abstract

Design and technology of modern optical systems in the visible part of the spectrum demand for more and more sophisticated glasses with regard to special properties. Athermal behavior of optical data, extreme low fluorescence and scattering, the stabilization against any kind of radiation and high transmission and chemical stability against the different aggressive media are some of the topics of interest beside the basic information of refractive index, its dependence on wavelength and relative partial dispersion. The current status of these demands, some thought about basic limitations and their future aspects of improving these properties are discussed.
