New Areas in Fiber Optics and Integrated Photonics

Call for Papers

Optical fibers and integrated waveguides are widely used to control light propagation, enhancement, scattering, and lasing. Since Charles Kao made an insightful discovery about optical fibers in the 1960s, optical fibers have played an extremely important role in various scientific and technological areas. Furthermore, with the development of nanofabrication technologies, low-cost and high-quality integrated waveguides are becoming widely available. Nowadays, optical fibers and integrated waveguides have been widely used to study the light-matter interactions in the nano/micro meter scale. On the other hand, numerous new materials, designs, and fabrication processes are continuously emerging, such as low-dimensional nanomaterials, disordered photonics, and topological and nonreciprocal photonics. Through exploring such emerging areas in optical fiber and integrated waveguide platforms, many new physical phenomena and applications are expected to be discovered.

This issue has a wide audience since it presents articles that address a broad range of scientific and technological problems. We invite investigators to contribute original research papers as well as review articles in new areas in fiber optics and integrated photonics.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Novel optical fiber and nanofiber devices
  • Silicon photonics
  • Low dimensional materials
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Topological and nonreciprocal photonics
  • Optomechanical devices
  • Advanced photonic device fabrication technologies

Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Manuscript Tracking System at

Submission DeadlineFriday, 16 March 2018
Publication DateAugust 2018

Papers are published upon acceptance, regardless of the Special Issue publication date.
