Controlling every step of the glass synthesis and purification process

THRUST 1 – Ultra-low loss middle infrared glasses

Reduction of intrinsic losses in infrared glasses, their derived optical fibres and components, by developing new methods for synthesizing these materials.

Development of analytical methods

Determination of contaminants in initial compounds and synthetic glasses; optical characterization of bulk, thin films and fibres

IMPACT

Control and optimization of the glass material and optical fibre fabrication processes.
