Abstract Optical fibres have been fabricated for the first time from As{sub 2}S{sub 3} glass containing chromium-doped ZnS and ZnSe crystals, and their optical loss and luminescence spectra have been measured in the mid-IR. In the spectral range 2 - 3 {mu}m, the optical loss in the fibres is 2 - 4 dB m{sup -1}. The fibres have a broad luminescence band in the range 1.8 - 3 {mu}m, with a maximum near 1.9 {mu}m, which is due to Cr{sup 2+} {sup 5}E - {sup 5}T{sub 2} intracentre transitions in the II - VI host.
