Abstract

Connectors, splices, and couplers are widely used in silica optical fiber systems. Until now they have not been developed for mid-infrared fibers, in spite of the recognized need for such elements in many applications such as spectroscopy, radiometry, and heterodyne detection. We describe the construction and the optical and mechanical properties of such optical components for infrared transmitting silver halide optical fibers.
