The photoinduced phenomena in films of chalcogenide glassy semiconductors (ChGS) was analyzed. The applications of these films for fabrication of IR microlens arrays and photonic-band-gap crystals were discussed. It was concluded that the observed anisotropy of photoconductivity is due to anisotropy of the carriers' mobility. The results show that ChGS open new possibilities in the development of different efficient electrooptical devices.
