Paper Abstract

New IR glasses transmitting from 1 to 20 im and having low loss potentiality in the 8- 12 pm region have been obtained in the Te-Br-Se and Te-I-Se systems. Single index fibers have been drawn from rods and the attenuation measuredin normal atmospheric conditions. The influence ofthe band gap absorption mechanism appears to be very critical as well as the addition ofelements such as Bi which seems to improve the mechnical properties.
