Abstract: Rare-earth ions doped chalcogenide glasses and fibers are capable of emitting 3-5μm fluorescence as mid-infrared sources. In this paper, kinds of rare earth ions emitting 3-5μm in Mid-infrared band and the corresponding transitions were firstly reviewed. The research progress of rare-earth ions doped chalcogenide glass materials with 3-5μm fluorescence in recent years was introduced. The main problems at the field of Rare-earth ions doped chalcogenide glass materials with 3-5μm fluorescence were summarized. In the end, the research trend of 3-5μm fluorescence emission of rare earth ions doped chalcogenide glasses was proposed.
