Abstract

Optical quality radial gradient-index (GRIN) glass can be made by first leaching a TiO2-Al2O3-SiO2 gel in aqueous sulfuric acid solution, then drying and firing the gel. In this paper, we present details of a study on the reproducible production of GRIN glasses by this sol-gel process. Physical and optical data on the intermediate gels and resulting gradient-index glass will be discussed.
