Editorial Reviews

This text provides a comprehensive introduction to infrared- transparent materials for windows and domes that must withstand harsh environmental conditions like high-speed flight or high-temperature process monitoring. Specific attention is given to the optical, mechanical, and thermal properties of infrared windows, the fabrication of infrared materials, optical coatings, protection from erosion, proof testing, and optical-quality CVD diamonds. Harris works in the Chemical and Materials Division of the Research Department at the Naval Air Warfare Center at China Lake, California. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
