About the book

Optical fibers have played a key role in making possible the extraordinary progress in world-wide communications that has occurred in the last 30 years and are vital in enabling the proliferating use of the Internet. Currently, they are also used in other areas such as medical, industrial and defence applications.

This book aims to introduce many new technology innovations to provide a fundamental understanding of the design, operation and practical applications of optical fiber based devices and systems. It covers a broad range of topics including new design and material for optical fiber, ultra-short pulsed lasers, high power lasers, optical amplifiers, sensors, new optical devices, and communication systems.

All the contributing authors are experts in the field, and this book aims to contain their latest research. This book should be beneficial not only to researchers and postgraduate students but also to engineers to provide them with the latest updates in technology and emerging applications

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sandra Maljavac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
