Preliminary materials results are reported of a study to develop novel fluoride glasses exhibiting maximum phonon energies lower than those of ZBLAN with the objective of realising an efficient optical amplifier for the coveted 1.3 μm wavelength domain. Pertinent material attributes including peak phonon energy, 1G4 lifetimes and thermal properties are reported for each glass host. © 1993.
