We describe the construction of elements of an optical materials property database. The database reports micromechanical properties (Young's modulus E, hardness H, fracture toughness Kc) for many optical glasses and crystals. Glass manufacturers included are Corning, Hoya, Schott, and Ohara. The materials included are many types of optical glasses and some optical crystals and polycrystals.
