Applications of chalcogenide fiber
D.W.Hewak, K.Khan and C.C.Huang
Chalcogenide glass optical fibers have been extensively studied since 1967, when sulphide based fibers and their potential applications were first proposed. While high quality fiber drawn from alloys containing a variety of chalcogen elements have been realized, their delicate nature, complicated fabrication methodology and expense has restricted widespread application and commercial acceptance. In this paper we describe our current work on the fabrication and application of chalcogenide fiber and our vision for their practical implementation in the future.
