Paper Abstract

The preparation pure glasses, fiber's drawing and optical characterization of chalcogenide (As2S3, As2Se3) and chalcohalide (As-Se-(Br,I), Ge-Se-I, Te-Se-Br etc) are given. Their transfer properties are suitable for a laser delivery of Er:YAG, CO and CO2 laser energy. For active optical fibers sulfide GeGaS and GeGaAsS glasses doped with Pr3+ ions were prepared and their optical and fluorescence properties are studied and offer perspection applications as the spectral fluorescence, the fluorescence lifetimes of 1G4 and the temporal fluorescence decay in a biomedical sensors.
