Paper Abstract

Amorphous Materials produces for IR applications three chalcogenide glass compositions: As2S3, Ge33As12Se55 designated AMTIR 1, and Ge28Sb12Se60 designated AMTIR 3. Methods of production will be discussed. AMTIR 1 and AMTIR 3 were used extensively in FLIR systems. Amorphous Materials produces thousands of small sensor lenses for non contact temperature measuring devices. Drawing of chalcogenide glass fibers at Amorphous Materials will be described. Chemical sensing is the main application. Currently, the fabrication of coherent fiber imaging bundles is under development. Extrusion of glass rods for chemical sensing will be mentioned.
