During the previous year, our group's achievements in the nanostructured fiber optic elements were demonstrated and awarded at domestic and international inventions fairs:
- 43 International Invention Fair "Geneva inventions”, in Geneva, 15 – 19 April 2015, award: silver medal
- International Invention, Innovation and Technology Fair, „ITEX 2015”, Kuala Lumpur, 21 – 23 May 2015, special award for ITME for the invention „Nanostructured gradient index microlenses with arbitrarily engineered spatial and chromatic properties”
- IX International Warsaw Invention Fair IWIS 2015, Warsaw University of Technology, 12-14 October 2015, award: gold medal and mention
- OPTON 3. International Fair on Optoelectronics and Photonics OPTONexpo 2015, 8-9 April 2015, Warsaw, Poland.
On 29.11 – 2.12, 2015, the Head of our Gropu, Ryszard Buczyński, prof. ITME, was one of the invited speakers at the Conference on Nonlinear Optics and Novel Materials organized by Vinh University in Vietnam.

Our Team, in collaboration with our colleagues from the Faculty of Physics at University of Warsaw, published results on the designing and fabrication technology of photonic crystal fibers with a nanostructure in the core. The paper entitled "Limits in development of photonic crystal fibers with a subwavelength inclusion in the core" was also featured by OSA Publishing in the SPOTLIGHT ON OPTICS series, which includes the most significant research papers appearing in journals like Optics Letters, Optics Express or Optical Materials Express (and other OSA journals).

The second paper in this topical area presents our results of technology and designing of a new approach to photonic crystal fibers. This is based on fibers, in which the cladding is a classic, uniform-index area, while the core is structured at the nanoscale level. This approach additionally enables arbitrary gradient index profiling of the core at the transverse plane of the fiber structure – not confined to an axial symmetry. The paper appeared in Optics Express vol. 23, issue 20, pp. 25588-25596 (2015).
