3D printing of chalcogenide glasses: an original way for the elaboration of microstructured preforms and optical fibers (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

The elaboration of chalcogenide microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) permits to combine the mid infrared transmission of chalcogenide glasses up to 18 µm to the unique optical properties of MOFs thanks to the high degree of freedom in the design of their geometrical structure. In this context, we have shown that chalcogenide preforms can be obtained by an original additive manufacturing process We have also shown that these preforms can be drawn into chalcogenide optical fibers. Those early-stage results open a new way for the elaboration of chalcogenide MOFs with more elaborate designs.
