A photometer to measure light scattering in optical glass

Laybourn, P.J.R., Dakin, J.P. and Gambling, W.A. (1970) A photometer to measure light scattering in optical glass Optical and Quantum Electronics, 2, (1), pp. 36-42. (doi:10.1007/BF01436153).

Record type: Article


A photometer is described for the measurement of light-scattering in high-quality, optical bulk glass. The photometer operates continuously over the wavelength range 0.5 to 1 µm and can measure scattering coefficients down to a level of 5 x 10^-7 /cm. A photon counting technique is used for light measurement and calibration is by reflection of the incident beam from on ideal diffusing screen. Measurements with high-purity benzene are in good agreement with computed and previous experimental values. Results of scattering from two samples of optical glass are given.
