Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The present Special Issue is dedicated to recent advances in materials and technologies for fiber lasers. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following areas:

  • Optical fibers based on new perspective materials (including doped glasses, soft glasses, and highly nonlinear glasses) and advanced laser systems (CW and pulsed, including systems with nonlinear light conversion stages) based on such fibers in various wavelength ranges, including mid-IR;
  • Photosensitive fibers, fiber Bragg gratings, and their applications in advanced fiber lasers;
  • Novel fiber designs for power/energy scaling of laser systems, including photonic crystal fibers and multi-core fibers, novel nonlinear propagation regimes in multimode fibers, and advanced high-power fiber amplifier designs;
  • Gas- and liquid-filled fibers and their applications in advanced fiber lasers;
  • Novel 2D materials for fiber lasers, the integration of such materials with fibers, and the applications of such integrations in fiber lasers, including mode-locking and Q-switching.

High nonlinearity and transparency in the 1–5 μm spectral range make tellurite glass fibers highly interesting for the development of nonlinear optical devices. For nonlinear optical fibers, group velocity dispersion that can be controlled by microstructuring is also of great importance. In this work, we present a comprehensive numerical analysis of dispersion and nonlinear properties of microstructured two-, four-, six-, and eight-core tellurite glass fibers for in-phase and out-of-phase supermodes and compare them with the results for one-core fibers in the near- and mid-infrared ranges. Out-of-phase supermodes in tellurite multicore fibers are studied for the first time, to the best of our knowledge. The dispersion curves for in-phase and out-of-phase supermodes are shifted from the dispersion curve for one-core fiber in opposite directions; the effect is stronger for large coupling between the fields in individual cores. The zero dispersion wavelengths of in-phase and out-of-phase supermodes shift to opposite sides with respect to the zero-dispersion wavelength of a one-core fiber. For out-of-phase supermodes, the dispersion can be anomalous even at 1.55 μm, corresponding to the operating wavelength of Er-doped fiber lasers. Full article
