  • Designing glass with non-dispersive stress-optic response 

    Galbraith, Justine; Zwanziger, Josef W (Elsevier, 2016-02-01)
    The dispersion of the stress-optic response of a series of barium and lead phosphate glasses is measured using an ellipsometric method. It is found that the barium glasses display consistently positive dispersion with ...
  • Photoelastic properties of oxide and non-oxide glasses 

    Galbraith, Justine (2014-12-15)
    An unperturbed piece of glass is optically isotropic. Birefringence can be induced by breaking this symmetry, for example by applying a uniaxial stress to the glass. An empirical model exists which predicts when oxide ...
