A set of novel potassium-calcium-aluminosilicate glasses are developed to serve as the cladding material for a doped ZnSe core infrared fiber laser. The compositions exhibit high glass transition temperatures between 753°C and 918°C and high thermal expansion coefficients between 5.75 ppm/°C and 8.21 ppm/°C. We demonstrate successful application of these glass compositions as a cladding for a ZnSe tunable fiber laser.
