Paper Abstract

The properties of glass-clad fibers containing cores of phase pure and highly crystalline silicon and germanium are reviewed. Although further optimization is required, losses of about 4 dB/m have been achieved at 3 μm and suggest that such semiconductor core fibers could be of practical value for nonlinear and infrared applications.
