... Crown glass is type of optical glass used in lenses and other
Crown glass is produced from alkali-lime silicates containing
approximately 10% potassium oxide. It has low n (≈1.52) and
low despersion (with Abbe Number around 60).
Generally, this is any glass with Abbe numbers in t ...

... physical reason for this is that the velocity of light is different inside the dielectric.
We are used to this happening in water or glass but in crystals the situation can be
more complex when crystals are anisotropic.
We have seen that the value of n is a function of λ. It normally decreases as λ

... When natural light passes through a triangular prism, the light is divided into seven colors similar to a
rainbow. This is because of a phenomenon known as dispersion. This demonstrates that different wavelengths
of light have a different refractive index. Engineers involved in optical design need t ...

Light Hits Near Infinite Speed in Silver-Coated Glass
... glass. It is the first with a refractive index below 0.1, which means that light passes through it at
almost infinite speed, says Albert Polman at the FOM Institute AMOLF in Amsterdam, the

Smart glass or switchable glass (also smart windows or switchable windows in those applications) is glass or glazing whose light transmission properties are altered when voltage, light or heat is applied. Generally, the glass changes from translucent to transparent, changing from blocking some (or all) wavelengths of light to letting light pass through.Smart glass technologies include electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic, suspended particle, micro-blind and polymer dispersed liquid crystal devices.When installed in the envelope of buildings, smart glass creates climate adaptive building shells, with the ability to save costs for heating, air-conditioning and lighting and avoid the cost of installing and maintaining motorized light screens or blinds or curtains. Most smart glass blocks ultraviolet light, reducing fabric fading; for SPD-type smart glass, this is achieved in conjunction with low emissivity coatings.Critical aspects of smart glass include material costs, installation costs, electricity costs and durability, as well as functional features such as the speed of control, possibilities for dimming, and the degree of transparency.
