Abstract

Depending on composition, chalcogenide glasses have been proven as a reliable medium to transmit light in the range from the visible to the long-wave infrared (LWIR), specialty glasses based on gallium lanthanum sulfide (GLS) with a selenium (Se) addition. This family of glasses offers a broad transparency window depending on the composition. Their optical, mechanical, and thermal properties have been exploited in their bulk form. In this paper, we demonstrate the fabrication of optical fibres from extruded structured (core-clad) preforms and rods, with an emphasis on maintaining the intrinsic characteristics of the glass and exploiting the optical fibre geometry for light delivery.
