As guest editors for this special issue, we are pleased to bring to you 25 representative
papers that highlight the technical program of the Optical Fiber Communication Conference (OFC)
and the National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (NFOEC), which took place in March 2012 in Los
Angeles, CA, USA. Our goal is for this body of work to provide both a historical record of
progress in optical fiber technology, as well as an archival resource to document highlighted
papers with substantially more information than can be presented within the limited conference
