Fluoride Glass Fibre Optics
A comprehensive survey of fluoride glasses which emphasizes optical fibre applications, and presents the latest results in glass processing, purification, optical fibre fabrication and characterization. The contributors both critically examine previously reported results and explore new techniques and results. The book functions both as a reference for the active researcher in the field, and as an introductory text for those working with infrared materials, optics, fibre optics and electro-optics.
