As guest editors for this Special Issue of the IEEE/OSA JOURNAL OF LIGHTWAVE TECHNOLOGY
(JLT), we are pleased to present a broad selection of the important contributions to OFC/NFOEC
2013, which took place in March in Anaheim, CA, USA. This special issue documents the state of the
art in optical fiber technology and networks in greater depth than is possible in the limited
format of the conference technical digest. To capture a broad range of subjects, we invited all
authors of accepted post-deadline papers and all tutorial presenters to submit a contribution to
this Special Issue. We encouraged all authors to augment their papers by including more detail and
additional content. All submissions underwent the standard peerreview process of JLT assuring
expected accuracy, completeness, and polished presentation.
