Paper Abstract

A number of CdSSe-doped fibers have successfully been fabricated and their linear properties characterized. The fiber was fabricated using Schott glass RG630, with a CdS0.5Se0.5 composition as the core material, and RG6 as the cladding material. The diameters of the fiber core range between 3 - 8 micrometers, and the outer diameter of the fiber range between 150 - 350 micrometer. The fibers were designed for single-mode operation in the 1300 nm and 1550 nm communication wavelength region. In this paper we report the linear characteristics of the fiber, including its linear absorption coefficient and transmittance.
