Novel specialty optical fibers refer to optical fibers that have been engineered in materials and structures and been post-processed for novel functionalities and applications. The optical properties in novel specialty optical fibers can be manipulated to achieve optimum performance, resulting in numerous important applications. For example, photonic crystal fibers represent a versatile platform to integrate disruptive technologies for new applications. The holey structures allow flexible controllability in designing their waveguide properties, as well as feasibility in developing multifunctional devices for sensing applications.
This Special Issue aims to present the highlight of the latest applications for novel specialty optical fibers. Both original research papers and review papers that focus on the design, development, and applications of novel specialty optical fibers are welcome.

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.
