An assessment of some melt-grown halide and chalcogenide cubic compounds as passive 8 to 12 μm optical materials

Abstract

On the basis of literature data, certain halide compounds were considered liable to be less water soluble than KCl and were grown to assess their physical properties. Data are presented for CsCdCl3, Cs2SnPbCl6, Cs2Sn2Cl3Br3, K2PtCl6,Rb2PtCl6 and Cs2PtCl6. Two chalcogenide compounds, Ga2Se3 and Ga2Te3, were also grown and assessed in relation to existing 8 to 12μm optical materials. Suggestions for future materials work are made.
