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.
Those fibers can be drawn in many kind of design depending on your needs, click on the category you are interested in to find out more :
