Special Issue "Fabrication of Special Optical Glass and Polymer Fibres"
A special issue of Fibers (ISSN 2079-6439).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2017).
Interests: specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers, fiber devices
Interests: Fabrication of special optical silica fibres and polymer fibres, optical fibre communications, and fibre sensor systems based on fibre Bragg gratings and photonic crystal fibres
In the past two decades, a significant number of applications have been developed, outside telecommunications, where optical fibers are rooted. Many of these applications are in the area of optical sources, sensors, and new transmission wavelength (UV, mid-wave IR, and long-wave IR). Some of notable applications already have already experienced significant commercial success and societal impact, e.g., fiber lasers/sources in industrial material processing and medical imaging, and fiber sensors in oil and gas and homeland security.
Very often, the key developments are novel optical fibers, which incorporate and enable a number of new functionalities. This Special Issue will focus on research in the area of novel materials and fabrication techniques of silica, soft glass, and polymer optical fibers.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 monthly 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 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
