Section 1: Modern glass systems used for passive and rare earth doped optical fibres
1. Fluoride glass family
2. Chalcogenide glass family
3. Oxide glass family
Section 2: Optical fibre fabrication and post-processing
4. Optical fibre fabrication for fluoride, chalcogenide and oxide glasses
5. Post-Processing soft glass optical fibre
6. Spectroscopy of the rare earth ions
7. Fibre sources for continuous wave emission
8. Fibre sources for pulsed emission
9. Fibre sources for broadband emission
Mid-Infrared Fibre Photonics combines the latest glass chemistry, fibre fabrication and post processing techniques to provide a comprehensive reference on the fundamental science and latest research in fibre photonics for the mid-infrared range.
The book systematically reviews the key glass materials systems including fluorides, chalcogenides, and oxides. Each materials chapter includes discussion of composition, structure, thermal, optical and mechanical properties, extrinsic and intrinsic loss mechanisms, materials preparation and purification techniques.
Then Mid-Infrared Fibre Photonics covers the most relevant fabrication, post-processing, and spectroscopy techniques. Fibre sources are also addressed including fibre sources for continuous wave emission, pulsed emission, and broadband emission. The book concludes with a brief overview of important medical, sensing and defence applications.

Stuart Jackson received the BSc and the BSc(Hons) degrees in 1989 and 1990 respectively from the University of Newcastle (Australia). In 1990, he joined the Centre for Lasers and Applications at Macquarie University to undertake research toward the PhD degree, which he received in 1996. In 1995, he joined the Laser Photonics Group at the University of Manchester and initiated the research there into high power fibre laser development. In 1999 he joined the Optical Fibre Technology Centre at the University of Sydney where he became a Senior Research Fellow and Technical Manager of silicate fibre fabrication. In 2009 he joined the School of Physics at the University of Sydney as a Queen Elizabeth II Fellow funded by the Australia Research Council. In 2014 he joined Macquarie University’s School of Engineering. His interests include diode-pumped solid-state lasers, spectroscopy, nonlinear optics and integrated optics.
