The following table lists the more common materials used for optical components (windows, prisms, etc.) in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum. The properties listed are needed to choose the materials with optimal transmission characteristics [1,2]. The thermal properties are useful when designing experiments for operation at elevated temperatures [3-5]. This listing is far from exhaustive, but these are the most common materials used in instrumentation laboratories.
