Abstract

We demonstrate microstructuring of chalcogenide fiber facets in order to obtain enhanced transmission due to the antireflective properties of the microstructured surfaces. A variety of molding approaches have been investigated for As 2 S 3 and As 3 Se 3 fibers. Transmission as high as 97% per facet was obtained in the case of As 2 S 3 fiber, compared to the native, Fresnel-loss limited, transmission of 83%.
