Chalcogenide glasses and glass-ceramics: Transparent materials in the infrared for dual applications
Comptes Rendus. Physique, Volume 18 (2017) no. 5-6, pp. 314-322.

In this paper are described the different research activities that led to the awarding of the Lamb prize by the French Academy of Sciences in order to promote research work on the national defense of France. This research concerns the development of infrared materials for night vision and the development of thermal imagers useful for defense, but also for civilian applications. The contribution has been particularly innovative in different sectors: broadening of chalcogenide glasses window of transparency, IR glass-ceramics with high thermomechanical properties, and the design of a new way of synthesis of these materials by a mechanical process.

Dans cet article sont décrites les activités de recherche qui ont permis l'obtention du prix Lamb, décerné par l'Académie des sciences dans le but de favoriser les études concernant la défense nationale de la France. Ces recherches concernent le développement de matériaux infrarouges pour la vision nocturne et la mise au point d'imageurs thermiques utiles pour des applications de défense, mais aussi civiles. La contribution est particulièrement innovante dans trois secteurs : l'élargissement du domaine spectral des verres de chalcogénures, les vitrocéramiques infrarouges à hautes propriétés thermomécaniques, ainsi que la conception d'une nouvelle voie de synthèse de ces matériaux par un procédé mécanique.
