In this paper, we shall briefly review some recent works done at The Pennsylvania State University on the photorefractive(PR) fibers and their applications. There are three major parts. First, we shall briefly review the growing process of single crystal fiber by using the laser heated pedestal growth (LHPG) technique. Second, a brief discussion on the theory of the holographic grating recording in the PR crystal fiber will be provided. Finally, the applications of PR crystal fibers to the holographic storage, fast speed wavelength tunable filter, and fiber optic true time delay line will be discussed.
