Abstract

The advantages of a four-term Sellmeier-equation fit to refractive indexes of recently produced fused silica are described. The four-term fit gives more accurate smoothing and interpolation of data than the threeterm fit used previously and also indicates data of questionable accuracy. After the suspect data had been eliminated, fits with an average deviation of 4.3·10<sup>-6</sup> were obtained with both three- and four-term equations over the range 0.21–2.32 µ.
