The results on the investigation of optical and mechanical properties of Ge-Sn-Se and Ge-Sn-Se-Te glass systems from the point of view of their application for infrared fiber production are discussed. Ge-Sn-Se, Ge-Se-Te and Ge-Sn-Se-Te glasses have been prepared with the purpose of drawing fibers for CO2 laser radiation (λ = 10.6μm). Their optical, mechanical and structural properties have been examined.
