Glass optical fibers are almost always made from silica; however, some other materials, such as fluorozirconate, fluoroaluminate, and chalcogenide glasses, are used for longer-wavelength infrared applications. Most glasses demonstrate a refractive index of about 1.5. Typically, the difference between core and cladding is less than 1 %.
