Paper Abstract

The Chalcogenide glasses offers a range of infrared transmitting materials to the optical fiber technology and this review attempts to bring together the currently available data on the mechanical properties of these fibers. Information is presented on glass composition and mechanical qualities, mechanical characterization techniques, and coating technology. Different studies have shown that changes in composition have little influence on mechanical properties of Chalcogenide glasses, and so other techniques will have to be employed in order to improve the mechanical performance. Among those techniques are compressive surface stress and multi-coating polymers.
