Semiconductor optical fibres for infrared applications: a review
Semiconductor optical fibres for infrared applications: a review
Over the last decade a new class of optical fibre has emerged that incorporates semiconductor materials within the core. These fibres are rich in optoelectronic functionality and offer extended transmission bands across the infrared spectral region so that their application potential is vast. Various fabrication methods have been developed to produce fibres with a range of unary and compound semiconductor core materials, which can be either amorphous or crystalline in form. This review discusses the main fabrication procedures and the infrared optical properties of the semiconductor fibres that have been fabricated to date, then takes a look at the future prospects of this exciting new technology.

Abstract

Over the last decade a new class of optical fibre has emerged that incorporates semiconductor materials within the core. These fibres are rich in optoelectronic functionality and offer extended transmission bands across the infrared spectral region so that their application potential is vast. Various fabrication methods have been developed to produce fibres with a range of unary and compound semiconductor core materials, which can be either amorphous or crystalline in form. This review discusses the main fabrication procedures and the infrared optical properties of the semiconductor fibres that have been fabricated to date, then takes a look at the future prospects of this exciting new technology.
