Paper Abstract

A state-of-the-art review of Pb-salt diode lasers is presented. Operational data on typical devices are shown, and the opto-electronic properties of the ternary Pb-salt crystal systems Pb1-xCdxS, PbS1-xSex, Pb1-xSnxSe, Pb1-xSnxTe, PbTe1-xSex, Pb1-xGexTe and Pb1-xGexS are discussed. Recent data on device reliability as well as current areas of R & D are reviewed. Areas of application include infrared spectroscopy, industrial process monitoring, isotope retio studies and infrared fiber studies. System configurations designed specifically for the assessment of infrared fiber losses and dispersion characteristics are discussed.
