Abstract : Work is reported on the ''Research and Development of Infrared Fiber Optics.'' The experimental work falls into two categories: (1) the fabrication and evaluation of fiber optics devices made from rare earth oxide glasses; and (2) the fabrication and evaluation of fiber optics devices made from arsenic-sulphur glasses. The fiber optics components of oxide glasses have been fabricated and are being tested and evaluated. The processes required for the construction of fiber optics components from arsenic sulphur glasses have been demonstrated on pilot quantities and will be used with larger quantities during the second quarter.
