Telluride glasses possess the widest infrared window of all amorphous materials and are key to a number of long-wavelength applications such as bio-sensing. However they are not intrinsically good glass formers and require significant materials engineering for device fabrication. Strategies for stable glass engineering are presented and the fabrication of far infrared optical fibers is described. A new type of optical sensor based on electrophoretic capture of protein is also presented. This sensor is based on a conducting telluride glass which can act as both a capture electrode and an infrared optical element for collecting vibrational signatures of target molecules such as proteins.
