Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 500 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.

Abstract: The rapid growth in Internet traffic has led to a huge demand for transmission capacity. If we are to meet this exponential demand for capacity, we must greatly increase the optical transmission power. High-power transmission in an optical fiber would cause serious problems such as a fiber-fuse phenomenon and bending-loss induced damages of optical fibers. We report that a photonic crystal fiber (PCF) has a fiber-fuse threshold power of more than ten times higher than that in conventional single-mode fiber (SMF). Furthermore, PCF has much lower bending loss than that in SMF. Therefore, PCF is an attractive optical fiber not only for high-capacity WDM transmission using its ultra wide bandwidth, but also for high-power optical communication.
