1. The topic of special issue
Key optical fiber sensing technologies and frontiers

2. Introduction for special issue
The Internet of things (IOT) is an important intelligent information infrastructure in 21st century. Optical fiber sensing technology, signal transmission technology and intelligent information processing technology are the technical basis of IOT. With the advantages of large capacity, long-distance transmission, low energy consumption, and multi-parameter sensing, optical fiber sensing technology has become a new wave of information technology which promotes the application of information technology in all walks of life. The exploration of the physical mechanism and further development of core technologies of optical fiber sensing, such as novel sensing mechanisms, high-quality laser light sources, new type optical fibers, innovative detection methods, as well as the pump or signal modulation and demodulation methods, have undoubtedly been an important driving force to push the deep development of optical fiber sensing technology. Therefore, "Opto-Electronic Engineering" plans to launch a special issue on "Key optical fiber sensing technologies and frontiers" in 2018. The purpose of this special issue is to present innovative optical fiber sensing technology and discuss its future development trend based on the review of the core technologies. Hopefully, this special issue will bring something new for the development of optical fiber sensing technology.
