Paper Abstract

Ongoing efforts on the purification of chalcogenide glasses and fiber draw processes enable the production of commercial-grade mid-infrared (MIR) fibers for 1.5-10 μm transmission. Results show multimode and single-mode MIR fibers with low-loss (<0.1dB/m) and high tensile strength (>20kpsi). High-power laser transmission has been achieved in single-mode fiber (>5 MW/cm2 CW).
