This feature offers papers from the OSA topical meeting, ADVANCES IN OPTICAL MATERIALS (AIOM 2012), held February 1–3, 2012, at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, San Diego, California, USA, and encompasses advances in optics, materials science, condensed matter, as well as physics and chemistry relevant to the development of new optical materials. Topics covered include material technologies in the field of crystals, glasses, and ceramics in the form of bulk and microstructured materials, such as composites, planar integrated waveguides and optical fibers, and characterizations and applications of these materials for passive optics, for lasers and nonlinear conversion devices for many applications. The AIOM featured approximately 42 presentations of which 10 were invited presentations. The next topical meeting of AIOM 2013 will be held in the autumn of 2013 in Paris, France, in conjunction with Advanced Solid State Photonics (ASSP).
