Aims and Scope

Optics and Photonics are primarily about the science of light, its generation and manipulation, and its interaction with gases, plasmas, molecules, and solids, including micro- and nanostructures in the service of practical applications where the nature of light is important. Optics and photonics cover the entire electromagnetic spectrum, which is much wider than the optical regime of ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light. It is a highly interdisciplinary field, bringing together researchers from physics, electronic and electrical engineering, chemical and biochemical engineering, etc.

To attract theoretical and practical outputs in the field, the Journal of Optics and Photonics Research (JOPR) is not limited to a specific aspect of optical science and engineering. It is devoted to a wide range of fundamental and applied optics research, bringing together scientists from various disciplines. Manuscripts of engineering sciences and interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome, in which high-quality research will benefit an extensive readership of academics and practitioners. Tangible industrial-related pathways to impact are achieved as well.

The Journal of Optics and Photonics Research considers original contributions using computational, experimental, theoretical, and integrative studies in Optics and Photonics studies, including (but not limited to):

  • Optical Physics
  • Optical and Optoelectronic Materials
  • Optical Fibers and Optical Communications
  • Lasers
  • Nonlinear and Ultrafast Optics
  • Plasmonics
  • Nanophotonics
  • Optical Instrumentation and Technology
  • Optical Components and Devices
  • Optical Sensors
  • Integrated Optics
  • Photonic Crystals
  • Quantum Optics
  • Other Related Topics in Optics and Photonics

The journal welcome submissions related to the latest research in those fields of scientific and engineering research appertaining to the development and applications of optical and photonic technologies.
