Fiber lasers and amplifiers are nowadays a powerful tool in many fields, and support fundamental science investigations, biomedicine and healthcare, advanced manufacturing, sensing, future earth-space communications, and cancer detection. Fiber lasers and amplifiers therefore have a strong impact on everyone's everyday life. However, the main applications are limited those of a small group of lasers emitting at specific wavelength, namely from 1 micron to 2 microns; in contrast, addressing the visible/ultraviolet mid-infrared region is still a challenge. This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of the state of the art and to discuss future trends, with regard to devices and possible applications. Papers related to new fiber types, the main building blocks of fiber lasers and amplifiers, will also be very favorably considered for this Special Issue. Original research as well as review papers are invited for this Special Issue.

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.
