Optical cements for interferometric applications

Wimperis, J.R. and Johnston, S.F. (1984) Optical cements for interferometric applications. Applied Optics, 23(8), pp. 1145-1147. (doi: 10.1364/AO.23.001145)




The wave front distortion introduced by optical cements is important in interferometric applications. We describe here tests performed to characterize two common cements, Epo-Tek 301 and Norland Optical Adhesive 61.
