Editor choice: Optical waveguides

With the increasing demand for optical communications, optical waveguides have been extensively studied due to their significance in the confinement and manipulation of light. Among optical waveguides, optical fibres - where the light is confined to the core of the fibre - have been an essential tool in achieving long distance communications with low attenuation. Here we present a selection of the most recent Scientific Reports papers on optical fibres, and – more generally – optical waveguides.
