Abstract. Refractometric and dispersive characteristics of polymers are investigated to confirm their application in the design of optical systems. Refractive indices of different types of materials are accurately measured in the visible and near-infrared spectra and dispersive parameters are analyzed. Influence of temperature is considered. Examples of polymer and hybrid glass-polymer optical elements and devices are presented.
