Title: OPTICAL ELEMENT AND APPARATUS COMPRISING TRANSPARENT SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIAL
Abstract:
An optical element (2) comprises transparent superconductor material (4). In particular, superconducting Indium-Tin-Oxide having a large refractive index which is very sensitive to external parameters can be utilized in various ways, e.g. as an extremely high dispersive prism, within a Fabry-Perot resonator, as a sensor for said external parameters, etc.
