Perfos and the laboratory Glasses and Ceramics Group of University of Rennes 1 have worked together to develop a new fabrication technique for chalcogenide preforms based on the glass-casting process. Various fiber profiles have been designed by the Fresnel Institute and fiber losses have been significantly improved, approaching those of the material losses. Using this technology, we have manufactured an AsSe CPCF exhibiting a nonlinear coefficient γ of 46 000 W-1km-1. Self-phase modulation, Raman effect, Brillouin effect, Four-Wave Mixing have been observed leading to the demonstration of various optical functions such four-wave mixing based wavelength conversion at 1.55 μm by FOTON, the demonstration of Raman Shifts and the generation of a mid-IR supercontinuum source by ONERA and the demonstration of a Brillouin fiber laser by FOTON.
