Paper Abstract

Our attention was focused on chalcogenide, heavy metal oxide glasses (TeO2/ - PbO, PbCl(subscript 2) and sapphire fibers. Improving of the purity of these glasses was achieved by their preparation in a halogen reactive atmosphere, the concentration of hydride impurities were diminished below 10-4 mol%. The values of optical losses are below 1 dB/m at 3 and 5 micrometer. The attention was focused on sapphire fibers too. The fibers about 1 mm in diameter and 200 - 300 mm in length were prepared. Their optical losses are below 1 dB/m at 3 micrometer.
