Optical, Thermal, and Mechanical Characterization of Ga2Se3-Added GLS Glass published in Advanced Materials.

Video abstract of our latest publication in Advanced Materials Jul 6, 2017 The results of the addition of Se to gallium lanthanum sulphide (GLS) glass through the substitution of Ga2S3 by Ga2Se3 are described. An innovative open melting apparatus is used. The addition of selenium to GLS glass generally results in a lower glass transition temperature…

Transmission of extended transmission GLS

The enhanced infrared performance of a new modified Gallium Lanthium Sulphide (GLS) chalcogenide glass family is illustrated in this transmission curve.  Details of the modification and the range transmission achieved are in Dan Hewak’s latest presentation. The strong bonding and high glass transition temperature that characterise GLS glasses are maintained in this formulation and are…

Latest ChAMP glass demonstrates extended IR transmission

With a new glass formulation, ChAMP has extended the transmission of high durability non-toxic chalcogenide glasses from the visible to the thermal infrared LWIR band Images show a thermal LWIR image from 7-14 microns being simultaneously transmitted through the same glass as the visible image. With a glass formulation specifically chosen for its strong covalent…
