Optical Materials Express Feature Announcement
Specialty Optical FibersSubmission Deadline: 15 August 2012
Publish Date: 1 November 2012
Featuring papers from the OSA Advanced Photonics Congress to be held 17 June - 21 June 2012 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA, this special issue encompasses all advances in materials science, condensed matter physics, chemistry, and processing relevant to the development of specialty optical fibers. Related manuscripts, not presented at this conference, are also solicited for this special issue. Submissions are invited on a range of topics, including, but not limited to the following:
- Material technologies:
- Novel oxide and non-oxide glass and polymeric fibers, microstructured / photonic crystal fibers, poled fibers.
- Novel materials for CW and pulsed fiber lasers.
- Advances in the materials-related understanding of photosensitivity in fibers.
- Materials physics and chemistry of poling of glass fibers.
- Characterizations and applications of these optical materials for active and passive specialty optical fibers.
- Novel applications of specialty optical fibers driven by advances in fiber materials and structures
The feature issue will be published in Optical Materials Express, OSA's newest journal, featuring rapid, open-access publication of content related to the synthesis, processing and characterization of materials for applications in optics and photonics. Your manuscript should represent an original, previously unpublished scientific report. Papers will be subject to the normal peer review process.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to Optical Materials Express and must be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system. When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Specialty Optical Fibers feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu). Please note that submissions to this feature issue incur the normal OMEx publication fee which is currently discounted at 50% of Optics Express publication charges.
