  • Publication number: 20190194056
    Abstract: Provided are an optical glass that has optical properties including a medium refractive index and low dispersion and that has good chemical durability and a low specific gravity, and a preform material and an optical element that use the optical glass. The optical glass contains a SiO2 component: 0% or more and less than 30.0%; 8.0% to 30.0% of an Al2O3 component; less than 20.0% of an RO component (where R represents at least one selected from the group consisting of Zn, Mg, Ca, Sr, and Ba) in terms of a mass sum; and 10.0% to 55.0% of an Ln2O3 component (where Ln represents at least one selected from the group consisting of La, Gd, Y, and Lu) in terms of a mass sum. A mass ratio (SiO2+Al2O3)/B2O3 is 0.3 to 10.0, and the optical glass has a refractive index (nd) of 1.58 or more and 1.80 or less and an Abbe number (?d) of 35 or more and 65 or less.
