In this work, we review recent progress on the realization of chalcogenides Photonic Crystal Fibers (PCFs). We present the fabrication of chalcogenide PCFs with a solid core for three different glass compositions containing a variety of chalcogens. We show that the Stack and Draw technique currently used for silica PCFs can be problematic in the case of chalcogenides glasses. We present correct PCF design enables a significant improvement of final fiber losses. We obtained a lowest attenuation of 3 dB/m at 1.55 μm, of 4.5 dB/m at 3.39 μm and 6 dB/m at 9.3 μm. We also present experimental demonstration of self phase modulation spectral broadening around 1,55 μm. Moreover, we investigate the Brillouin and Raman scattering properties of a GeSbS PCF.
