Abstract

Experimental results of measurements for Russian magneto-optical glasses MOG101, MOG105, MOG04, and MOG10 are presented, including the coefficient of electronic nonlinearity, energy of thermal defocusing, and power resistance. For comparison, the same parameters are shown for the optical glass K8 (an analog of the well-known BK7 glass), the fused silica QU-1, and the laser phosphate glass GLS-22P. The obtained data allow consumers to choose the proper magneto-optical materials for the device operation mode.
