The main reason for this was the early demonstration of the enormous potential of such glasses for use as long-haul ultra-low loss middle infrared waveguide materials, aided in part by the scientific interest held by their unusual short range structures. As a result, significant research efforts were initiated in the academic, government and industrial sectors in Europe, the United States and Japan.

However, the search for a finished product has per haps led to a partial overlooking of some of the more funda mental aspects by the scientific community. After the initial excitement, the workers in this field are perhaps at a crossroads where attenuations lower than 1 dB/Km need to be obtained for long lengths of fiber of good chemical and thermal stability, in order to guarantee continual R&D sUE ports.

Therefore, there is a strong need for a critical asses sment of the potential of halide glasses for infrared fiber optics and the formulation of recommendations for future re search in this area and other related fields.
