This feature issue will present cutting-edge research on specialty optical fibers. Covering modeling, fabrication, and characterization, it will highlight recent developments in a new generation of optical fibers, including their use as a framework for quantum networks, how they contribute to the study of light-matter interaction and new characterization techniques, and their application in fiber devices. We welcome research describing advances in the fundamentals of optical fibers, as well as for applications in the oil and gas, military, healthcare, and communications areas.
Topics to be covered include but are not limited to:
All submissions need to present original, previously unpublished work, and will be subject to the normal standards and peer-review process of the Journal. Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual guidelines for submission to JOSA B and uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system. When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Specialty Optical Fiber Modeling, Fabrication, and Characterization feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu).
