14 January 1986 Fluoride Glass Infrared Optical Fibers In Medicine And Biology
Author Affiliations +
Infrared fluoride glass fibers less than 1 dB/m between 0.5 and 4.5 μm are now currently manufactured. They are drawn from multicomponent ZrF4-based glass preforms in various core to cladding ratios. These fibers may be used in several technological fields connected to medicine and biology : infrared spectrometry and in line gas analysis, remote I.R. spectrometry, thermal imaging and laser surgery.
