Infrared properties of PbTe
What is it about?
The optical and semiconductor properties of PbTe coatings are governed by a variety of factors that contribute to its performance. This paper describes the temperature-dependent properties.
Why is it important?
Lead telluride (PbTe) is an important coating material in the infrared, particularly as a high-index layer for high-performance filters in spacecraft applications.
