Abstract

Optical silver chloride in the form of plates, sheet, film, and special shapes has been developed to meet both wartime and peacetime needs for this unique infra-red transmitting material. The remarkable plasticity of silver chloride has been used to develop the technique of forming this material into various optical shapes not possible with other crystalline optics. Large single crystals are grown by the gradient method. Such single crystals are more easily worked into various shapes than is possible by using the multiple cast ingot as a starting point. Optical and transmission data as determined up-to-date is given.
