An infared image guide made of bundled As–S glass fiber cores has been developed. The transmission range of this fiber was 2–6 μm. At the 3.3- and 4.8-μm wavelengths the minimum optical loss was 0.6 dB/m. With this image guide efficient transmission of the thermal image was experimentally established.
