Refractive Index of Bulk Materials
Please that this service is currently unavailable, but we hope to be able resume it in the future.
Refractive index is a bespoke measurement service, tailored to individual customer requirements through technical discussion.
NPL can offer refractive index measurements of bulk solid, gel and liquid materials at a range of discrete wavelengths from 404.6 nm to 1014 nm (including the sodium D-line at 589.3 nm) and over a continuous range of wavelengths from 1270 nm - 1640 nm. Typical refractive index uncertainties are in the region of 10-4, depending upon the sample opacity and surface quality. These measurements are currently available as a consultancy.
Clients will receive an NPL report, as appropriate (available as both electronic and hard copy).
