Scope of Symposium

This symposium provides a platform for academics, scientists, and industrial players to present innovations and discuss opinions in the field of specialty optical fibers. Particular focus will be on high energy fiber lasers, novel optical amplifiers, ultra-fast fiber lasers, micro-structured fibers, rare-earth doped fibers, polymer optical fibers, crystalline and ceramic optical fibers, and fibers for biomedical and bioscience applications.


The manuscripts of all those papers that are presented at the conference and accepted after peer review will be published online in “Procedia Engineering” by  Elsevier. Details for online submission of the manuscripts will be made available by concerned symposium chair while accepting the paper for presentation at the conference.
