The optical transmission and indices of refraction for the cubic isomorph of ZrO2 stabilized with 12.0-mol % Y2O3 were measured at various temperatures and for a range of wavelengths from 0.36 to 5.1 μm. Index data to ±5 × 10−5 were fitted to a three-term Sellmeier equation. The value of ND = 2.15847. The dispersion NGNB = 0.06044, while that for NCNF = 0.03455. The temperature coefficient of the refractive index between 20 and 130°C varies from 1.6 × 10−5/K for 0.36-μm radiation to 0.62 × 10−5/K for 1.6-μm radiation.
