Abstract

The indices of refraction, thermal variations of refractive indices, and thermal expansion coefficients were measured for the gadolinium garnets Gd3Sc2Ga3O12 (GSGG) and Gd3Sc2Al3O12 The variation of these properties with trivalent chromium doping was investigated for GSGG. The refractive indices were determined by the minimum-deviation technique, with indices fitted to a five-parameter Sellmeier formula. The thermal coefficients were measured by an interferometric technique using simultaneous Twyman–Green and Fizeau interferometry.
