Abstract
The Gas Film Levitation (GFL) technique, based on aerostatic lubrication on a porous membrane, allows containerless processing and shaping of large material samples. This method is applied to the preparation of ZBLAN fluoride glasses, which are promising candidates for low-loss infrared fibre applications. Fluoride glass samples of high optical quality are obtained starting directly from a powder mixture of the different fluorides. Laser Scanning Tomography and light scattering measurements are used to characterize the as-made samples.
