Applied Optics and Journal of the Optical Society of America B Feature Announcement

Digital Holography and 3-D Imaging

Submissions Open: 15 October 2016
Submission Deadline: 1 December 2016

The Digital Holography and 3-D Imaging feature of Applied Optics and JOSA B is a continuation of a tradition, since 2007, to highlight current topics in digital holography and three-dimensional imaging. The issue follows the conclusion of the highly successful OSA Topical Meeting "Digital Holography and 3D Imaging (DH)," held in Heidelberg, Germany, 24–28 July 2016, as part of the OSA Imaging Congress. Like before, the Topical Meeting provides a forum for science, technology, and applications of digital holographic and three-dimensional imaging and display methods. To be eligible for publication, any paper from a DH presenter needs to add substantial and/or significant new information to the original conference summary. Please see OSA's guidelines on conference papers, found here.

Whereas meeting participants are particularly encouraged to submit their work, this feature issue also welcomes papers outside of the meeting that align with the topics of the DH Topical Meeting, including the science and technology of 3D imaging and display system, digital holography and holographic microscopy, computer-generated hologram, holographic lithography, holographic remote sensing, biomedical imaging.

Topics to be considered include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in Digital Holographic Techniques
  • 3D Imaging and Display Systems
  • Computer Generated Holograms
  • Compressive Holography
  • Transport of Intensity and Quantitative Phase Imaging
  • Digital Holographic Microscopy
  • Digital Holographic Optical Processing
  • Metrology and Profilometry
  • Holographic Remote Sensing Techniques
  • Biomedical/Clinical/Medical Applications
  • Dynamic Holography and Novel Recording Materials
  • Digital Holography in Nonlinear Optical Systems
  • Terahertz Generation and its Application to Digital Holography
  • Polarization Holography
  • Digital Holography for Inspection of Scattering Media
  • Novel Software Tools/Algorithms for Digital Holography
  • Other Novel Applications of Digital Holography

Choosing the Appropriate Journal:

Scientific and technology innovations are the main factors for submissions to either one of the journals. As for Applied Optics, we encourage authors to give full and in-depth descriptions of the concept, theory, mathematical model, experimental system, and experimental results. For example, when a reader can reproduce your results by following your paper, we deem the descriptions as in-depth. JOSA B submissions, on the other hand, should concentrate more on the dynamic holography, novel recording materials, THz generation and its applications to DH, polarization holography, etc.

Authors should recognize the aforementioned difference between the two journals and select the appropriate journal for submission. If the selection of the journal is inappropriate, the feature issue editors may recommend to the authors a transfer to the other journal.

Submission of supplemental material is encouraged for this feature issue. Recognizing the importance of different types of supplemental materials, OSA has expanded its options so that authors can now provide external links to their large datasets, code, and design files in their manuscripts in addition to their visualizations and tabular data files (see Author Guidelines for Supplementary Materials in OSA Journals). Not only do these new types of supplemental materials enhance the quality of a manuscript, but they also enrich the experience for readers. See OSA's supplemental material guidelines found here.

Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to the Journals; see the Information for Contributors in any printed issue or the OSA Style Guide: https://www.osapublishing.org/author/author.cfm. Manuscripts must also be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system: https://www.osapublishing.org/author/author.cfm. Please specify that the manuscript is for the Digital Holography and 3D Imaging feature (choose from the feature issue drop-down menu).
