Paper Abstract

The necessity to take into consideration the absorption by free carriers in silver and thallium halides for the evaluation of minimal' optical losses in these materials and fibers from them in the range 2 T 25 μm is pointed out for the first time. It is shown that the absorption by free carriers exceedsfor 1- 2 orders the previous minimal loss evaluations and its value is found to be 10-1 - 10-2 dB/km.
