Optical fiber technologies have achieved major advances in the last few decades, and have fundamentally reshaped the way we see, the way we sense, the way we communicate, and the way we live. They are especially well developed in the telecommunication industries and have great potential in new application fields such as sensing, lighting and industrial purposes. In addition to serving as transmission media, optical fibers have been used to realize several types of optical devices, namely optical amplifiers, broadband sources, optical sensors, and fiber lasers. These devices have the potential for widespread applications in different areas of science and technology. The rapid progress in optical fiber technology can be attributed to the continuous research efforts on the development of improved optical fibers, new optical devices, and new applications.
The aim of this Special Issue is to feature recent advances in the specialty optical fibers, optical fiber devices, and other applications, in terms of, but not limited to, fiber material and properties, design and fabrication, light localization structures, fiber surface functionalization through sensitive and/or transducing techniques, as well as fiber sensing systems.
It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute original full research papers, short communications, and state-of-the-art reviews to this Special Issue.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Crystals 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 2600 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.
