Fluoride glass technologies for XXIst century’s challenges

Fluoride glasses were discovered at the University of Rennes in 1974 and the technology has matured for more than 45 years. The quality of fluoride glass fibers has increased and costs have decreased significantly; this is why more and more fluoride based devices are integrated into scientific and industrial devices. We will describe a panorama of the current and upcoming developments and their potential to answer future challenges in the medical, industrial and ecological fields.
