Paper Abstract

Synthesis of infrared (IR) windows for use in the 8-14 µm "atmospheric window" has been investigated. Materials for this application require corrosion resistance, high hardness and strength with good thermal shock resistance. Oxides, which might have the required mechanical properties because of their strong M-0 bonds, especially when M is a light metal, absorb in this region; a more massive anion is needed.
