Paper Abstract

The use of fluorophosphate glasses for transmission in the mid IR and as optical fibers have been attempted for the first time. These materials are easy to prepare and are of relatively low cost. They can be attractively compared to either chalcogenide or heavy metal fluoride glasses for midIR transmission. Preparation techniques mechanical and optical properties are reported. 1 .
