Published on behalf of the Society of Chemical Industry by Wiley, 1989 - Science - 219 pages
Presents the state of the science and technology of fluoride glasses. Discusses the composition and structure of fluoride glasses and describes many modern applications, such as their use in passive infrared optics and in the containment of corrosive fluorine compounds. Also considers possible future applications of fluoride glasses, such as active infrared optics and fiber optics for long-distance telecommunications.
