Paper Abstract

Great strides have been made in reducing optical losses of chalcogenide glass fibers using improved chemical purification and fiberization techniques. The losses are low enough for practical applications which include laser power delivery for infrared missile protection systems. Fiber cables have been fabricated and successfully used in field demonstrations for missile defense
