Paper Abstract

Optical and mechanical properties of commercially available chalcogenide glasses (AsSe, AsGeSe, AsGeSeTe and SbGeSe) are reported. The measured optical properties include: bulk transmittance (between 0.5 and 25 μm) and the attenuation (at 10.6 μm) of core and optically clad fibers. The measured mechanical properties include: bending and tensile strength testing of coated, uncoated, core and optically clad fibers. In addition to the measured physical characteristics, some potential applications of chalcogenide fibers are mentioned.
