Abstract

The index of refraction of fused quartz glass was determined for 24 wavelengths from 0.34669 to 3.5078 microns, using the minimum deviation method. The whole range is covered with a single instrument. The variation in index between samples was determined and no definite variations in dispersion were observed. Possible relations between purity and index are discussed.
