Extract

Variations in gel aging times and temperatures are shown to affect the optical properties of a gel-derived GRIN lens. These properties include the variation of the total index change as well as the shape of the index profile. However, these optical properties do not appear to correlate with the amount of modifier removed during the leaching step. Also, regardless of aging, gels appear identical with respect to calcining response and composition of pore liquid.
