Paper Abstract

Chalcogenide glass fibers based on sulphide, selenide, telluride and their rare earth doped compositions are being actively pursued at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) as well as world-wide. Great strides have been made in reducing optical losses using improved chemical purification techniques, but further improvements are needed in both purification and fiberization technology to attain the theoretical optical losses. Despite this, current singlemode and multimode chalcogenide glass fibers are enabling numerous applications. Some of these applications include laser power delivery, chemical sensing, scanning near field microscopy/spectroscopy, and fiber IR sources/lasers and amplifiers.
