Wavelength: µm
 (0.4047 – 0.7679)  
 

Other optical constants

logX   logY   eV

Dispersion formula [ i ]

$$n^2=2.957019+\frac{0.0216485}{λ^2-0.0158650}-0.0101373λ^{2}$$

Comments

30 °C. This formula gives more accurate values for visible than the other formula describing the entire transmission range.
