Optical Materials Express Feature

Optical Fibers: Materials and Applications

Submission Opens: 1 August 2020
Submission Deadline: 15 September 2020

Optical fiber technology is a crucial component in sensing, medical treatments, nonlinear optical devices, mid-infrared applications, as well as modern high data rate and capacity communications. This feature issue will highlight the most recent advances in optical fiber technology, with a focus on conventional as well as microstructured optical fibers based on different materials for linear and nonlinear optics. Applications such as fiber lasers, supercontinuum generation, biomedical imaging, fiber Bragg grating sensors, ultraviolet/mid-infrared devices and components will be covered. Emerging topics such as hollow-core and multi-component fiber technology will also be encouraged and we will welcome contributions that focus on design and modeling based on novel functional fiber materials.
