Paper Abstract

We report the design, fabrication and optical characterization of a step index and microstructured crystalline optical fibers from silver halide that are singlemode at 10.6 &mgr;m, the wavelength of a CO2 laser . Optical losses measured by cutback method were about 2 dB/m. The wide transmission range of the material (wavelengths 2-20 &mgr;m) provides great potential for applications in spectroscopy and for the development of a range of new crystalline-based non-linear optical fibers. Singlemode fibers for the middle infrared may be applied in infrared systems for heterodyne detecting.
