Special Issue "Photonic Crystal Fibers: Design, Fabrication and Applications"
A special issue of Photonics (ISSN 2304-6732).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
Interests: hollow and solid core photonic crystal fibers; terahertz; ultra-short lasers systems; post-compression; nonlinear photonics; diagnostics; laser-matter interaction; parametric amplification
The purpose of this Special Issue is to highlight active research dedicated to “Photonic Crystal Fibers” from their design and fabrication to their implementation in emerging applications. Indeed, the design of PCF is closely related to targeted applications by choosing appropriate materials and geometry. This photonic technology is still opening the door to new applications including the transmission of a specific spectral range (from the XUV to the mid-infrared and Terahertz) for a direct use of the fiber (passive configurations) but also for the conversion of light waves from a nonlinear or a laser-emission process (active configurations).
Fibers technical topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Design and fabrication fibers;
- Laser developments, post-compression, amplifier with fibers;
- Spectroscopy, imaging, endoscopy;
- Linear and nonlinear photonics.
These key fiber application topics will be discussed in both invited and contributed talks, providing comprehensive overviews of the current status and future directions as well as original results on research and recent developments in fibers and applications.

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.
