Graded-index silver chlorobromide fibers for the mid-infrared.


We have developed and characterized graded-index optical fibers for the mid-IR spectral range, based on silver chlorobromide (AgClBr) crystals. A preform was fabricated by inserting a cylindrical rod made of AgCl(0.1)Br(0.9) into a tube made of AgCl(0.9)Br(0.1). The preform was heated in an oven, causing diffusion of Cl into the outer layer of the rod, thus… (More)
