Fabrication of rib waveguides and optical fibres in chalcogenide glasses
Lian, Zheng Gang (2011) Fabrication of rib waveguides and optical fibres in chalcogenide glasses. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Chalcogenide glasses offer transmission from the far visible to the far - infrared (IR) wavelength range. They exhibit photosensitivity and have high linear and nonlinear refractive indices. There are many potential applications involving near- and mid- infrared light such as laser delivery, optical data storage and all-optical switching. Two types of optical waveguides based on chalcogenide glasses were developed in this project:
