Paper Abstract

The thermal properties of the tellurium halide glasses, the TeX glasses, are greatly improved by introducing a trivalent element As. Tg as high as 150 degree(s)C can be obtained and the glasses still transmit up to 18 micrometers . Vitreous thin films have been deposited on different substrates, using the sputtering techniques. Mono-index fibers and fibers having a core- cladding structure have been successfully drawn. The typical attenuation for the first fibers is less than 5 dB/m and for the second fibers is less than 7 dB/m.
