As research, development, and deployment of fiber lasers continues to expand, the Fiber Lasers Conference at Photonics West has become the preeminent gathering in the field. Drawing leading researchers from universities, laboratories, and industry, it provides a comprehensive update in all areas of fiber lasers and amplifiers. Submissions are solicited in all areas related to fibers and fiber lasers broadly categorized into the following four sub-categories:
SPECIAL ABSTRACT REQUIREMENTS: PEER REVIEW
Submissions to this conference must include the following three separate abstracts: Submissions must be completed by the abstract deadline. This conference does not accept post-deadline abstracts for oral presentation.

Best Student Presentation Awards
A cash prize donated by our cosponsors will be awarded to the top 3 student oral presentations. Additionally, the winner of the best presentation award will be granted a 1-year honorary membership to the program committee (which means that the winner will be involved in the scoring of the manuscripts, in organizing next year's best student presentation award, and will get access to all the internal discussions/meetings of the current program committee). To be eligible for consideration, the student must:
Presentations will be judged by the committee based on scientific merit, impact, as well as clarity of the student presenter’s talk. While the manuscript will not be judged, it is expected.

Support for Authors
Based on availability of sponsorship funds, reduced registration fees or partial travel support may be available for presenting authors whose submissions are accepted. If you wish to apply, please contact SPIE (JenL@SPIE.org) after notification of paper acceptance. Include your SPIE paper number, name, and amount/type of support requested. Requests will be accepted through October 2024 for Photonics West 2025.;

As research, development, and deployment of fiber lasers continues to expand, the Fiber Lasers Conference at Photonics West has become the preeminent gathering in the field. Drawing leading researchers from universities, laboratories, and industry, it provides a comprehensive update in all areas of fiber lasers and amplifiers. Submissions are solicited in all areas related to fibers and fiber lasers broadly categorized into the following four sub-categories:
  • Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers: Scaling and Limits
  • Devices, Components and Sub-systems
  • Specialty Diodes/Pump Lasers for Fiber Lasers
  • Fiber Laser Materials and Spectroscopy
  • Design, Fabrication, and Characterization
  • Environmental hardened fiber lasers
  • Special Fibers: Crystaline, Multi Core, PCF
  • Ultrafast and High Energy Fiber Lasers
  • Advanced Beam Control Techniques
  • Narrow Linewidth and Mode-locked Fiber Lasers
  • Visible and Mid-IR Fiber Lasers.

SPECIAL ABSTRACT REQUIREMENTS: PEER REVIEW
Submissions to this conference must include the following three separate abstracts:
  • 100-word text abstract (for online program)
  • 250-word text abstract (for abstract digest)
  • 2-page extended abstract required from contributed speakers (supplemental file; for committee review only)
    • the extended abstract is limited to two pages, including tables and figures
    • include author names and affiliations; text; any figures, tables, or images; and sufficient data to permit peer review (main body text font size at least: 11 pt. Times/Times Roman)
    • for US letter-size, set margins to .875 in. (2.22 cm) left and right, 1.0 in. (2.54 cm) top and 1.25 in. (3.17 cm) bottom
    • for A4 size, set margins to 1.925 cm left and right, 2.54 cm top, and 4.94 cm bottom
    • only the extended abstract (PDF file) will be considered by the review committee when scoring submissions to determine acceptance
    • extended abstracts will be used only for the purpose of peer review and will not be published
    • contributions without an extended abstract will not be considered for the conference.
Submissions must be completed by the abstract deadline. This conference does not accept post-deadline abstracts for oral presentation.

To be eligible for consideration, the student must:
  • be a graduate or undergraduate full-time student
  • have conducted the majority of the work to be presented
  • be the submitting author and select “Yes” when asked if you are a full-time student
  • select yourself as the speaker
  • under TOPIC selection, choose “Consider for Best Student Presentation Award”
  • be accepted to present an oral presentation
  • submit your manuscript online by the deadline
  • make the oral presentation.

Presentations will be judged by the committee based on scientific merit, impact, as well as clarity of the student presenter’s talk. While the manuscript will not be judged, it is expected.
