Paper Abstract

KRS-5 polycrystalline fibers having a core-cladding structure have been fabricated by complex extrusion. The core material is KRS-5 (T1Br-TlI), and the cladding material is KRS-6 (T1Br-T1C1). Through thermal treatment after fiber fabrication, the refractive index profile is changed to the graded index (GI) type. The attenuation loss of these core-cladding GI fibers is 0.2 dB/m at about 10.6 μm (lauching NA = 0.05). Fibers with this core-cladding structure will enable wide applications using far infrared wavelength light, for example in CO2, laser processing machines and spectroscopy equipment, because of their ease in handling.
