Paper Abstract

A literature survey of refractive indices, thermo-optic constants and photoelastic constants has been conducted for materials of potential use in high-power ultraviolet applications. The limiting ultraviolet wavelength for which data exist is given for twenty alkali-halides, sixteen other crystalline solids, and three glasses. The bulk of the materials selected for the survey have band gaps that exceed 7 eV which is twice the photon energy of the XeF laser. There are large gaps in the available data for most of the materials.
