Microstructured optical fibres in chalcogenide glass
Li, Qingquan (2013) Microstructured optical fibres in chalcogenide glass. MPhil thesis, University of Nottingham.
Chalcogenide glasses offer transmission windows within the far-visible, near- and mid-infrared (IR) range. They exhibit potentially excellent linear and large nonlinear optical properties, photosensitivity and their low phonon energies are conducive to efficient dopant rare earth transitions. These properties enable many potential infrared applications: large-scale optics; fibreoptics; integrated optics; optical imaging; optical data storage and all-optical switching. Two lines of experimental work were followed in this project based on chalcogenide glasses, as below:
