A brief overview is done to the development of the fiber-optic technology. These recent topics, not the commonly established techniques, are described connecting with the developments of the basic concepts and the expected applications. Some of these newly introduced ideas will become the seeds for the future development of the fiber-optic technology. These seeds include the very deep understanding of the fiber material, new concepts for the fiber characteristics, the brandnew fiber-optic devices and the fiber-optic systems and the applications.
