Abstract : During this period the development program at Rutgers University was initiated and a series of experimental melts completed. The melts were limited to formulation variations of a lanthanum crown glass which exhibited the most promise of the six experimental melts previously evaluated. The best performance achieved was with melt A25 exhibiting 44.5 percent transmission at 370 millimicrons, expansion of 84.5 over the range of 25 C to 425 C, and an index of refraction of 1.725. A spectrograph has been constructed at CAI to permit measurement of relative transmission of the glass and fiber optic plates. Photographs of the spectrograph are included.
