Several recent technological breakthroughs have led to a renaissance of interest in optical fibers, which are now widely used for applications as diverse as telecommunications, medicine, and sensing. Contemporary optical fiber technology is inherently multidisciplinary, inter-relating fields as diverse as glass science, mechanical engineering, and optics. This paper reviews several aspects of silica optical fiber technology in which thermal transport plays a critical role. Future research directions are discussed.
