    Wave Help with a school project

    I have to write a general chemistry paper, and I thought I would write about the relationship of chemistry and the optical field. I am looking for chemical equations or formulas for lens materials, coatings, etc. Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated!:cheers:

    Here are a few images of common chemicals used in the optical lab

    Acetone = To remove markings
    Aluminum Oxide = The main ingredient in our lens polishing compound
    Benzophenone = The main ingredient in a UV coating
    Ethyl Alcohol = The main ingredient in denatured alcohol also grain alcohol
    Ethylene Glycol = Tint neutralizer

    Also do a search for CR-39 for regular plastic, it is an interesting material to look at.

    Do you speak French ?

    I have an entire 300 pages book on the subject.
    PM me if interested.
    I may contact the author (my former teacher, who's a chemist) or give you his email.

    But if you're in a hurry...
    Learning French is not easy
    You will just understand the book in a few years
