Innovation of solid-state sources of coherent radiation, including lasers and nonlinear optical frequency convertors, has long been a materials-limited field. That is why advances in optical materials offer opportunities improvements in performance and new applications. In this special issue, we focus on laser and nonlinear materials with new device fabrication methods and designs for new light sources.
