Abstract
Heavy metal fluoride glasses offer considerable potential interest for a wide variety of applications in visible and mid I.R., such as optical waveguides, I.R. domes, windows, laser hosts, etc... ZrF4 based glasses with a transmission in the 0,2 - 7 μm band, and ThF4-ZnF2 based glasses with an I.R. absorption edge in the 8-9 μm region, are potential ultratransparent materials for the 3-5 μm window. The main characteristics of these two classes of vitreous materials are detailed here, including preparation, manufacturing, optical and thermal properties.
