Photonics Research

Share this on social media:

The Optical Society (OSA) has launched the first issue of its newest peer-reviewed, open-access journal, Photonics Research. The journal is being published in partnership with the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics (SIOM) and Chinese Laser Press (CLP).

Photonics Research is intended as a new international platform for researchers to share advances in optics and photonics. Topics include, but are not limited to: lasers, LEDs and other light sources; fibre optics and optical communications; imaging, detectors and sensors; novel materials and engineered structures; optical data storage and displays; plasmonics; quantum optics; diffractive optics and guided optics; medical optics and biophotonics; ultraviolet and x-rays; and terahertz technology.

'As international research collaborations become more prevalent, Photonics Research provides a platform for scientists from around the world to gain exposure in a high-quality journal,' said editor-in-chief Zhiping Zhou of Peking University.

The journal is freely available to all readers via OSA’s digital library, Optics InfoBase, and CLP’s Opticsjournal.net platform. The new journal will provide authors of accepted papers with professional composition and rapid article-at-a-time publication, as well as an enhanced HTML formatted version and article-level metrics on Optics InfoBase.
