Paper Abstract

There is a requirement for new materials which are transparent in the 8-12 µm range and have superior thermal shock resistance, mechanical strength, toughness and thermal stability compared to those materials which are presently available. In oxide systems, the SiAlON family of ceramics and glasses is known to have particularly good thermal shock resistance and mechanical properties, thus GeGaSP analogs of the SiAlON ceramics should be a promising system to investigate for new materials. Preliminary results of an experimental study are reported.
