Abstract
We have fabricated long lengths of low loss sulphide and telluride glass fibers for the 1 - 6 and 3 - 12 micrometers regions, respectively. Minimum losses for core/clad fibers are approximately 0.6 and 0.7 dB/m, respectively, while core-only fibers have exhibited losses of about 0.1 dB/m. The measurements have been performed on long lengths, typically 7 - 50 meters. Fiber strengths are reasonable for many short length applications, but improved processing will lead to stronger fibers for long length applications. These fibers are candidates for chemical sensors and for IR laser power delivery.
