1 Scope
This document specifies the principle, apparatus, condition, sample, procedure and data processing of measuring striae in infrared optical materials.
It is applicable to the determination of striae in infrared optical materials, such as infrared optical glass,which is opaque to visible wavelengths and whose transmission optical spectra are beyond 0,78 µm.

3.1 striae
regions of resembling bands, layers or rods formed due to short range severe deviations of refractive index in infrared optical materials, observed only by infrared detecting devices
3.2 striae value
average grey level of striae (3.1) multiplying the percentage of striae area per thickness of infrared optical materials
4 Principle
The principle of this test is to illuminate a sample with collimated infrared radiation and image the material in a Schlieren or projection imaging system. The striae will be imaged and measured, and then the area and the product of striae area percentage to the mean grey level will be calculated. When the projection optical system is adjusted to a beam-contracting telescope system, it is known as a projection measurement system. And when the projection optical system is adjusted to a camera system which utilizes a knife edge device, it is known as a Schlieren measurement system. The schematic diagram of striae measurement in infrared optical materials is shown in Figure 1.
5 Apparatus
5.1 Apparatus arrangement The apparatus consists of a collimating infrared light source system, a sample adjustment stage, a projection optical system, an image sensor, and a computer image collecting, processing and displaying system.
5.2 Collimating infrared light source system
The collimated infrared light source system consists of a light source, a condenser, a light source diaphragm, and an infrared collimating optics. The diaphragm shall be placed at the focus of the infrared collimating optics. The emission spectrum of the system shall cover or be within the transmission spectrum of the sample. The nonuniformity of light intensity distribution shall not be more than 5 %. The radiation intensity of the light source shall meet the requirement of the response of the image sensor. The emergent light aperture of the system should be more than the diameter of the sample.
