Re: Question Optical properties - cellulose acetate (Sam Blake)
Date: 13 Jul, 2012
From: Joel Long <Joel Long>

Hello Sam,

Personally, I have also found that it can be extremely difficult to establish optical properties for materials. Either there isn't all that much data out there, or I have never figured out the right terms to search with.

The best site I have found, however, is here (link takes you to cellulose, but you can browse their database):

http://refractiveindex.info/?group=PLASTICS&material=Cellulose

They have relatively detailed optical data on a reasonably wide variety of materials. cellulose acetate isn't there, or I would have linked it. Best I found for that was, oddly, at the site for the museum of fine arts in Boston:

http://cameo.mfa.org/browse/record.asp?subkey=1934

I would also be interested in hearing about any good sources other people have found.

Thanks, Joel Long
