Abstract
This program will develop a single-phase cubic material with near zero thermal expansion and high (>80%-85% in-line) infrared transmission from 3 µm to 5 µm for infrared domes and windows. The low thermal expansion material will have high thermal shock resistance as well as good mechanical strength to survive harsh environments. In this Phase I project we will produce a fully dense sample of the cubic material by hot pressing, and measure coefficient of thermal expansion and IR transmission on 1 mm thick planar samples.
