Abstract : The Materials Advisory Board Ad Hoc Committee on Infrared Transmitting Materials was established in June 1967 to study the problem of developing bulk or castable glass that would transmit in the 8 to 14 micron range and still be capable of successfully resisting the high temperatures and mechanically induced stresses which are intrinsic to many current and projected infrared applications.
