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 As2S3 and As3Se3 fibers. Transmission as high as 97% per facet was obtained in the case of As2S3 fiber, compared to the native, Fresnel-loss limited, transmission of 83%.
