Abstract

Gallium lanthanum sulphide (Ga:La:S) glass and fibre have potential use in both active and passive infrared applications. Here we present just some of the steps involved in realising a new compound glass and devices. Importance of raw material synthesis and preparation of preforms through rod-in-tube and extrusion methods is highlighted. With losses close to 1 dB/m and the possibility of devices based on our glass, Ga:La:S will enhance prospects for future generation of sulphide fibre-based devices.
