Low loss mid-infrared ZBLAN waveguides for future astronomical applications

Gross, Simon; Jovanovic, Nemanja; Sharp, Adam; Lawrence, Jonathan; Withford, Michael; Ireland, Michael


Photonic technologies will be at the heart of future terrestrial planet hunting interferometers. In particular the mid-infrared spectral region between 3:5-4:2 mm is the ideal window for hunting for young extra-solar planets, since the planet is still hot from its formation and thus offers a favorable contrast with respect to the parent star compared to other spectral regions. This paper demonstrates two basic photonic building blocks of such an instrument, namely single-mode waveguides with...[Show more]
