An article titled "Application-Tailored Specialty Optical Fibers" by Rodrigo Amezcua-Correa, Jose Enrique Antonio Lopez, and Axel Schülzgen is featured on the cover of IEEE photonics society newsletter.

Fiber optics is an integral part of the modern optoelectronic technologies. In particular, specialty optical fibers (SOFs) that are tailored for specific applications can open avenues to novel photonic devices. However, there are only a few academic institutions in the United States that have a strong focus on fiber-optic research and, even fewer, that have the facilities required to fabricate state-of-the-art fibers and prototype devices, based on tailored SOFs. Since 2012, a comprehensive fiber optics facility has been developed at the University of Central Florida within CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics. The facility is now available to fabricate complex optical fibers within a short timeframe. Here, we present an overview of the fiber facilities at CREOL and a selection of research activities utilizing SOFs in various technology areas.
