Mid-infrared transmission properties of amorphous germanium optical fibers

Mid-infrared transmission properties of amorphous germanium optical fibers
Mid-infrared transmission properties of amorphous germanium optical fibers
Germanium optical fibers have been fabricated using a high pressure chemical deposition technique to deposit the semiconductor material inside a silica capillary. The amorphous germanium core material has a small percentage of hydrogen that saturates the dangling bonds to reduce absorption loss. Optical transmission measurements were performed to determine the linear losses over a broad mid-infrared wavelength range with the lowest loss recorded at 10.6 µm. The extended transmission range measured in the germanium fibers demonstrates their potential for use in mid-infrared applications.

Abstract

Germanium optical fibers have been fabricated using a high pressure chemical deposition technique to deposit the semiconductor material inside a silica capillary. The amorphous germanium core material has a small percentage of hydrogen that saturates the dangling bonds to reduce absorption loss. Optical transmission measurements were performed to determine the linear losses over a broad mid-infrared wavelength range with the lowest loss recorded at 10.6 µm. The extended transmission range measured in the germanium fibers demonstrates their potential for use in mid-infrared applications.
