Paper Abstract

The intrinsic loss processes in mixed silver halide fibers and their dependence on the halide concentration are studies in this work. This includes the electronic band-gap absorption, multiphonon absorption, and Rayleigh scattering. In addition, we study the halide concentration dependence of the refractive index and the static dielectric constant in silver halide mixtures. As a result, we obtain numerical values for the predicted minimum loss, the wavelength of minimum loss, and the optical window of the mixtures as a function of the halide concentration in the fiber.
