Optical Materials
Additional Companies
  • optical materials Materials that, by virtue of their optical characteristics (i.e. refractive index, dispersion,  etc.), are used in optical elements. See crystal; glass; plastic lens.
  • crystal optics The study of the transmission of radiant energy through crystals, especially anisotropic crystals, and their effects on polarization.
  • plastic optics The integration of plastic materials into optical applications. When the materials are refined into lenses, prisms and mirrors, they serve the purpose of glass optics at a lower cost and a significant savings of weight.
