  • Call for Papers _ Special Issue on "Recent Advances in Quantum Photonics"

    Quantum technologies are expected to lead to a step change in human capabilities in applications in computing, communication, and sensing. Photonics is one of the most promising platforms for quantum technologies as photons travel at the fastest possible speed and readily protected from decoherence. In the past years, quantum photonics has achieved significant development, including loophole free Bell tests, satellite quantum communications over thousands of kilometers, and quantum computing outperforms the world’s most powerful supercomputer by orders of magnitude for a specific task.

    The study of quantum photonics now spans various multidisciplinary fields in the fundamental research of quantum information processing, technological investigation of integrated quantum photonics, and emerging applications from quantum chemical simulation to ultra-high resolution sensing. To highlight the exciting developments in this field and to promote the diverse applications of quantum photonics, Associate Prof. Yunhong Ding (Technical University of Denmark) and Assistant Prof. Jianwei Wang (Peking University) are organizing a special issue on Recent Advances in Quantum Photonics. Submission deadline is March 31, 2023.

  • Call for Papers _ Special Issue on "Microresonators for photonic applications and beyond"

    Microresonators are resonators that confine light in micrometer scale mode volume. Microresoantors have become one of the most important elements in nanophotonics and integrated optics technology, including filters, sensors, lasers, optical switches, etc. Geometries as well as material platforms of microresonators are surprisingly diverse, ranging from micro-posts/disks/spheres/toroids/rings, Fabry−Perot and photonic crystal cavities to microcavities on regular/irregular polygonal nanocrystals or even topologically curved surface, and materials from silica, silicon, silicon nitride, lithium niobite, diamond, AlN, crystalline materials including CaF2 and MgF2, to III-V semiconductor materials such as AlGaAs. Extreme light confinement by light circulations can significantly enhance light-matter interaction and leads to interesting yet useful phenomena such as dissipative Kerr soliton combs, harmonic generations etc. Combined with new physics from non-Hermitian systems and other disciplines, enhancement performances at optical/phonon lasing, sensing, exotic light propagation have been demonstrated. In order to promote research on the fundamental physics of microresonators and related applications for photonics and beyond, Prof. Heng Zhou (University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, China) and Prof. Jing Xu (Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China) are planning to organize a special issue on Microresonators for photonic applications and beyond. Submission deadline is 15 December, 2022.

  • Frontiers of Optoelectronics flip to OA in 2022

    In order to best serve our authors and readers and to meet research funder requirements, we are pleased to announce that Frontiers of Optoelectronics is moving to full Open Access (OA) publication from Jan 2022 on. This means that all content published in the journal is published under an open-access license, and freely available to readers worldwide, enabling the widest possible dissemination and reuse. 

    We are also happy to tell you that the APC for the accepted manuscript will be fully sponsored by Higher Education Press and Huazhong University of Science and Technology. We thank you for all your support of the journal and look forward to witnessing the future development of the journal with you.
