Abstract

The birefringence of hexagonal cadmium sulfide single crystals has been measured between 2.5- and 13-μm wavelength with an estimated accuracy of ±0.0002 of the difference between the ordinary and extraordinary refractive indices. This accuracy is sufficient for the calculation of the thicknesses of wave plates for use in this spectral region.
