Creating optical fibres with unique and adjustable properties

THRUST 2 – Microstructured and multi-functional optical fibres

Development of optical fibres with accurately controlled values of non-linearity and dispersion. Until recently the fabrication of MOFs was only mastered for silica glass but there is now a strong interest for developing such waveguides using mid-IR glasses such as chalcogenides, germanates and tellurites.*

Chalcogenide optical fibres with very low attenuation in the mid-infrared

IMPACT

For applications such as lasers in the 3-5µm and 8-14µm windows.
