Abstract

Chalcogenide glass optical fibers have been extensively studied since 1967, when sulphide based fibers and their potential applications were first proposed. While good quality fiber drawn from alloys containing a variety of chalcogen elements have been realized, their delicate nature, complicated fabrication methodology and expense has restricted widespread application and commercial acceptance. In this paper we describe our current work on the fabrication and application of chalcogenide fiber and our vision for their practical implementation in the future. We focus on new methods for the synthesis of chalcogenide glass, in particular, chemical vapour deposition, which is now showing potential for the synthesis of some of the high purity chalcogenides made to date. Opticals fibers represent only one important use of these materials and in this talk we also described related research in the application of chalcogenides in thin film devices and metamaterials.
