Abstract
The basic principles used to design infrared transmitting glasses are briefly explained. The composition and properties of oxide, halide, and nonoxide chalcogenide glasses show the utility and limitations of these materials for infrared applications. In general, glass systems with an infrared absorption edge at longer wavelengths have smaller compositional areas of glass formation, and the glasses have poorer physical and chemical properties.
