Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

More than 55 years have past since when Charles K. Kao (who received the Nobel Prize in Physics 2009) and George Hockham at STC Laboratories (STL), England, proposed to use the transmission of light in fibers for optical communication. Advances in fabrication methods and researchers’ ingenuity have since led to an impressive amount of new components and applications, with telecommunications and sensing areas at the forefront. Photonic crystal structures have later provided optical fibers with further properties and capabilities.
The aim of this special issue is to gather contributions from research groups worldwide in order to get an overview of the current status of theory and applications of optical fibers.
Topics would include: materials (silica and non-silica based), processing, fabrication technologies, measurements, propagation properties, modeling, fiber designs, microstructured and photonic-crystal fibers, fiber devices and passive components, fiber gratings and their applications, specialty fibers, micro and nano-fibers, fiber sensors, fiber optic probes, fiber amplifiers and lasers, novel applications.

Submission

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. Fibers is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. 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.
