Abstract

Dispersion of the principal refractive indices of pure and Yb 3+ (20 at.%)-doped KY ( WO 4 ) 2 crystal is obtained in the visible range of the spectrum. A comparatively strong increase of the refractive indices ( 0.005 0.007 ) was observed for the doped crystal. Temperature dependence of the principal refractive indices is measured in the temperature region of 290 690   K . Thermo-optical coefficients (TOCs) of the first d n / d t and the second ( 1 / 2 ) ( d 2 n / d T 2 ) order are determined. It is found that TOCs are negative for n p and n g and positive for n m in both crystals. Doping increases d n p / d T almost two times more in comparison to that of the pure crystal, while for the other two indices TOC changes are insignificant.
