We propose new transition metal (TM)-doped ZnSe / As 2 S 3 : As 2 Se 3 composite materials for mid-IR fiber lasers. The composites are the suspension of crystalline micro- and nanosized TM 2 + : ZnSe or TM 2 + : ZnS powders in chalcogenide glasses with the refraction index matching. Mid-IR room-temperature lasing of Cr 2 + : ZnSe / As 2 S 3 : As 2 Se 3 microcomposite material is demonstrated at the 2.4 μm wavelength.
