Abstract
The primary objective for the development of infrared fibres based on fluorozirconate glasses has been the that of long distance repeaterless telecommunications, and sufficient progress has been made to suggest that this target should be reached in the not too distant future. The quality of the fibre has improved dramatically over the past two years, to the extent that moderate losses ( 3 - 5 dB/km ) are possible over lengths in excess of 200 m, and although not yet suitable for telecommunications, this type of fibre has many other commercial uses. In this work we will review the progress that has been made in reducing losses and improving reproducibility and mechanical properties. We will discuss the types of fibre that it is now possible to fabricate and finally descibe some preliminary applications that these fibres are already able to meet.
