Optical and Mechanical Properties of Water Clear ZnS


Optical and mechanical properties of water clear ZnS produced by CVD, Inc. of Woburn, MA, have been measured. These include optical absorption at several laser wavelengths, spectral transmission, thermo-optic coefficients, stress-optic coefficients, thermal expansion coefficient, density, specific heat, thermal diffusivity, and electrical resistivity. Measurements were made on production grade material and three research batches and correlations made for optical properties as a function of deposition parameters.
