Paper Abstract

Fundamental optical properties of heavy metal fluoride glasses are presented as well as the different families of these new optical materials. The main characteristics of rare-earth doped glasses such as emission, energy transfer, non radiative loss, are discussed. A survey of the recent laser operations obtained on bulk and especially on fiber is reported.
