Editor-in-Chief Guifang Li announces the new editorial advisory board for the Journal.

As editor of the only journal dedicated to in-depth reviews and tutorials in its subject area, I intend for Advances in Optics and Photonics (AOP) to continue to serve our community by publishing comprehensive, relevant, and useful articles written by leading international researchers. In that vein, I intend to cover topics that have maintained vigorous interest/activity over a long period and yet have ample room to grow, as well as emerging areas where I expect discoveries and recent groundbreaking results to have an impact on research and applications in optics and photonics immediately and in several directions.

Identifying these topics and authors in a timely manner is critical to the success of AOP. To that end, I have established an advisory board of visionaries in our community that represents a cross-section of subdisciplines of optics and photonics:

  • • Thomas Baer, Stanford University

    Biophotonics, medical diagnostic instrumentation

  • • Connie Chang-Hasnain, University of California at Berkeley

    Semiconductor integrated optics

  • • Kishan Dholakia, University of St. Andrews

    Advanced imaging, beam shaping, and optical manipulation

  • • Alexander Gaeta, Columbia University

    Quantum and nonlinear photonics

  • • Naomi Halas, Rice University

    Nanophotonics and plasmonics

  • • Yuri Kivshar, Australian National University

    Metamaterials, plasmonics, and nonlinear nanophotonics

  • • Gerard Mourou, University of Michigan and École polytechnique

    Ultrafast and high-power lasers

  • • Masataka Nakazawa, Tohoku University

    Quantum electronics, communication

  • • Philip Russell, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light

    Nonlinear optics, waveguides, and optical fibers

  • • Andrew Weiner, Purdue University

    Ultrafast optics

  • • Alan Willner, University of Southern California

    Optical communications and networking

I am grateful that they have graciously agreed to help in service of AOP, and I look forward to their advice.

I view the establishment of the advisory board as a top-down approach in identifying topics and authors. AOP can also benefit tremendously from the collective wisdom of its readership, in a bottom-up approach. Therefore, I encourage all of you to send recommendations for potential topics and authors. You can reach me via email at li@ucf.edu, and the AOP editorial staff can be reached at aopmss@osa.org.

Together, let us take AOP to new heights.
