We summarize activities that we carried out during the grant period in collaboration with scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory. Our joint research focused on two activities. The first was the study of propagation in chalcogenide fibers and materials and focused on super continuum generation, negative curvature fibers, and motheye structures. We found ways to achieve a broad bandwidth in chalcogenide fibers and to maximize the transmission into and out of these fibers. The second was the study of high-current photodetectors and focused on determining the sources of nonlinearity and methods to mitigate them.
