Heavy metal halide glasses have the potential of showing minimum optical losses between 0.01 and 0.001 dB/km. One reason for current interest in these materials is the possible application to very long-distance transmission systems. Most studies of these glasses have dealt with material related issues such as glass forming, thermodynamical properties, and fiber processing techniques.1
