Abstract

We report transparent ROSnOP2O5 (R=Zn, Ba, Sr) glasses with low photoelastic constant less than 1B(1×1012Pa1) and high refractive index more than 1.65. The BaO or SrO substitution effect of SnO on optical properties is nearly the same as ZnO substitution of the ternary zinc tin-phosphate glass without hazardous oxide. A new series of BaOSnOP2O5 glass characterized with a very low photoelastic constant of 0.08B, high refractive index (1.66), and better water durability is a candidate for precise polarization control devices such as optical filters and beam splitters.
