Since the discovery of ZBLAN glasses in 1974, Le Verre Fluoré has worked to develop a large range of fluoride optical fibers, including ZrF4, InF3 and AlF3 based optical fibers, designed for mid infrared applications.
Our fluoride fibers can be separated in three main categories :
ZFG (Zirconium ZrF4 Fluoride Glass) = fluorozirconate fibers
Exhibit a high transparency from 0.3 up to 4.5µm (see graph below)
IFG (Indium InF3 Fluoride Glass) = fluoroindate fibers
Exhibit a high transparency from 0.3 up to 5.5µm (see graph below)
AFG (Aluminium AlF3 Fluoride Glass) = fluoroaluminate fibers, generally used for end-capping solutions. Contact us to know more about AFG.
