Paper Abstract

Transparent and colorless glass rods have been obtained from the A1F3-ZrF4-YF3-CaF2-SrF2-BaF2-NaF (AZYCSBN) and A1F3-BaF2- CaF2-YF3-SrF2 (ABCYS) systems. Chemical durability and certain optical properties of these glasses have been investigated and compared with ZBLAN. The infrared transparency of AZYCSBN is slightly less than ZBLAN but higher than the ABCYS glass system. A1F3 based glasses appear to offer some interesting opportunities for short range IR fiber applications such as sensing, remote spectroscopy and laser power propagation.
