Abstract

A new model for analyzing optical properties of silicate glass materials including borosilicates has been developed. The model is based on computing refractive-index and density values of a given optical glass whose oxide composition is known in terms of weight fractions. The refractive-index variation with wavelength has also been used to predict the chromatic behavior of these glasses. The model has been compared with the existing chromatic model and was found to give more accurate values for borosilicates.
