Paper Abstract

Review of the latest development in production and advanced applications of specialty fibre optics includes specialty silica fibers and IR-fibers drawn from chalcogenide glasses and extruded from crystal solutions of Silver Halides. Transmission range of these 3 types of fibers spans 0.2 to 18μm, while the power of radiation they may deliver varies from microwatts for sensing applications to several kilowatts - when silica fibers are assembled, for example, in high power cables for laser technology applications. Various probes and bundles assembled from specialty fibers are used for remote sensing of IR-emission, temperature, mechanical stress and for process-spectroscopy in very broad range - from 0.2 to 18μm.
