Paper Abstract

Efforts have been underway for several years at AMI to develop methods to fabricate infrared imaging bundles from chalcogenide glass fibers. Bundles have been formed using fibers made from an As-Se-Te glass (C1) and from As2S3 glass (C2). Most have been made using 100 micrometer core fibers, clad and unclad. Bundles have contained as few as 100 active fibers and as many as 3000. Lengths have ranged from 1 to 10 meters. Methods of construction will be discussed. Evaluation results will be presented. Images formed using infrared cameras sensitive at 1.4 micrometer, 3 - 5 micrometer and 8 - 12 micrometer, will be shown.
