Since the discovery of ZBLAN glasses in 1974, Le Verre Fluoré has worked to develop a large range of fluoride optical fibers, including ZrF4, InF3 and AlF3 based optical fibers, designed for mid-infrared applications.
Our fluoride fibers can be separated in three main categories:
ZFG (Zirconium ZrF4 Fluoride Glass) = fluorozirconate fibers
Exhibit a high transparency from 0.3 up to 4.5µm
IFG (Indium InF3 Fluoride Glass) = fluoroindate fibers
Exhibit a high transparency from 0.3 up to 5.5µm
AFG (Aluminium AlF3 Fluoride Glass) = fluoroaluminate fibers, generally used for end-capping solutions.

LVF offers a large range of ZFG and IFG single mode and multimode fibers. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LVF offers also a new range of germanate GeO2 multimode fibers that exhibit a high power handling and chemical stability around 2.7-3.0 μm. These are the fibers of choice for Er, Cr:YSGG and Er:YAG laser power handling and pigtailing.
