Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.

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. 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 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.

Abstract
Recent interest in the application of mid-infrared (mid-IR) lasers has made the generation of ~3 µm ultrafast pulses a hot topic. Recently, the generation of femtosecond-scale pulses in Er3+-doped fluoride fiber lasers has been realized by nonlinear polarization rotation (NPR). However, [...] Read more.
Recent interest in the application of mid-infrared (mid-IR) lasers has made the generation of ~3 µm ultrafast pulses a hot topic. Recently, the generation of femtosecond-scale pulses in Er3+-doped fluoride fiber lasers has been realized by nonlinear polarization rotation (NPR). However, a numerical study on these fiber lasers has not been reported yet. In this work, the output properties of the NPR passively mode-locked Er3+-doped fluoride fiber ring laser in ~3 µm have been numerically investigated based on the coupled Ginzburg–Landu equation. The simulation results indicate that stable uniform solitons (0.75 nJ) with the pulse duration of femtosecond-scale can be generated from this fiber laser. This numerical investigation can provide some reference for developing the high energy femtosecond soliton fiber lasers in the mid-IR. Full article

The most important components for application in high-power all-fiber lasers and amplifiers are, most of all, power combiners, but also mode field adaptors. This paper summarizes recent achievements in the area of development and fabrication of high-power passive fiber components. The principles of operation and basic design and fabrication criteria, which have to be taken into account while designing the aforementioned components, are explained in detail. The most recent impressive achievements are summarized and described. Full article
