De Gruyter is launching three new journals in 2012, two of which are being produced in partnership with specialist organisations.

DGLM (the German society for laser medicine) and the SALC (Swiss laser surgery association) will produce their official journal, Photonics and Lasers in Medicine, with de Gruyter. The new specialist journal will deal with topics relating to the use of lasers in all forms of minimally invasive surgery, endoscopic operating procedures and dermatology.

De Gruyter will also start producing Advanced Optical Technologies in partnership with the European Optical Society (EOS). This journal is said to address readers from applied science and industry, with a range of articles dedicated to the science and application of state-of-the-art optical technologies and processes. The journal includes concise “tutorials” designed to educate the user about new processes and developments from industry and research.

The third title, Nano-Photonics will provide an interdisciplinary platform for work on the interaction of light with nanostructures such as nanotubes, photonic crystals and DNA. Specialist articles by physicists, engineers and material scientists will sum up current developments in different disciplines relating to all aspects of nanophotonics.
