Fiber lasers have been a subject of intense study since their first demonstration by Koester and Snitzer in the sixties. The improvements carried out in the following decades resulted in a reliable technology and fiber lasers came onto the market at the beginning of the XXI century. Further research is required to develop new applications that make fiber lasers an indispensable tool for lighting the world in the near future.
Researches are encouraged to submit the results of their work to this Special Issue which covers a set of topics from fundamentals to applications:
- Underlying physics.
- Materials and components.
- New glasses and fibers.
- New emission wavelengths.
- Tunable and multiwavelength lasers.
- Pulsed lasers. Ultrafast lasers.
- Power lasers.
- Supercontinuum generation.
- Technologies for cost reduction.
- Lasers for industry.
- Lasers for telecommunications.
- Lasers for medicine.
- Lasers for detection and ranging.
- Lasers for defense.
- Lasers for extreme physics.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Photonics 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 1800 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.
