Paper Abstract

Single crystal fibers of thallium, silver and cuprous halides have been fabricated by passing polycrys-talline extruded fibers through a small submillimeter melt zone, converting them to single crystal fibers. The lowest loss measured in a single-crystal fiber was 6.6 dB/m at 10.6 μm for AgBr, 620 μm in diameter and 80 cm in length.
