Abstract

Monocrystals of Ag 1 x Tl x Br 1 x I x and Ag 1 x Tl x Cl y I z Br 1 y z for the spectral range from 2.0 to 40.0 μm with improved photostability were developed and grown. The grown crystals were used for fabrication of single-mode IR fibers. Experimental studies of optical properties of these fibers have confirmed their single-mode operation at CO 2 laser wavelength and demonstrated wider mode field for microstructured fiber compared to fibers with conventional double-layered structure.
