Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids
Handbook of Thermo-Optic Coefficients of Optical Materials with Applications
- Gorachand Ghosh, Electrotechnical Laboratory, Umezono, Tsukuba, Japan
This volume in the Handbook of Optical Constants of Solids is the first and only book to provide comprehensive coverage of refractive index and thermo-optic coefficients. It contains the refractive indexes and thermo-optic coefficients for nonlinear crystals, semiconductors, optical glasses, and fiber glasses. The Sellmeier coefficients of two physically meaningful Sellmeier equations are evaluated and are used to calculate these values throughout the normal transmission region of these optical materials. The author has also included analysis and explanations for some temperature-dependent optical devices/systems
Designed for scientists, engineers, advanced students in physics, material science, nonlinear optics, fiber optics, and waveguide technology. Serves as an excellent self-teaching book, classroom text, and reference source.
