About Publishing in Applied Physics B

Publishing essential research results in one of the most important areas of applied physics, Applied Physics B: Laser and Optics places among the most cited journals in its field.

The journal features: 

  • Rapid publication of experimental and theoretical investigations in applied physics.
  • Invited reviews in addition to regular papers.
  • Electronic publication prior to print via Springer’s Online First.
  • The high electronic and print quality ensures excellent reproduction of photographs.

Covering the Lasers and Optics "Spectrum" 

Applied Physics B covers the broad field of laser physics, linear and nonlinear optics, ultrafast phenomena, photonic devices, optical and laser materials, quantum optics, laser spectroscopy of atoms, molecules and clusters, and use of laser radiation in biophotonics, chemistry and biochemistry
The editorial board reflects the multidisciplinary approach and the international character of the journal.

Worldwide visibility and accessibility 

Publishing in Applied Physics B gives your research the best exposure to both the academic and industrial lasers and optics community. We publish research from around the world, and Springer's SpringerLink platform puts the journal on 20 million desktops globally. Springer is also THE key English-language presence in the Asian scientific publishing arena.

Innovative Publishing Models 

In addition, Springer (and therefore Applied Physics B) is committed to the future of scientific publishing. As such, we offer a range of publishing models, ranging from the traditional (with no page charges) through Open Choice and beyond.
