Paper Abstract

This paper will provide an overview of AMMRC's current optical material programs. Projects include the development of reinforced radome materials, high strength multi-mode transparent windows, tunable laser crystals, crystal growth of Nd:YAG by VSOM, hard optical coating materials, epitaxially grown thin film crystals, glasses for laser absorption, low-cost hermetically sealed optical fibers, and oxynitride glasses. Ongoing work in the laser crystals, multi-mode windows (AlON), and oxynitride glasses areas will be reviewed in some detail.
