New class of optical fiber developed at Penn State; ZnSe waveguide cores open infrared spectrum

By Eileen De Guire / March 16, 2011

a) Schematic of the HPCVD process, where a high pressure precursor mixture is configured to flow into a capillary (left). When the capillary is heated, well-developed annular films are deposited. Unreacted precursors, carrier gas, and reaction byproducts are carried out of the fiber (right). b) Diascopically illuminated optical micrograph from the side showing the transparent,…
