Summary

Chalcogenide glasses are promising materials for photonic applications due to their unique properties and functionalities. Chalcogenide glasses are transparent from the visible to the near infrared region and they can be moulded into lenses or drawn into fibres. One of the most commercially successful applications has been lenses for infrared cameras. Chalcogenide glass fibres and optical components such as waveguides have been developed for use with lasers, for optical switching, chemical and temperature sensing and phase change memories. Part one covers preparation methods and properties of chalcogenide glasses and Part two explores the photonic applications of chalcogenide glasses.
