This year, three of the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) pillars will begin operation. This large laser facility will host the most intense beamline system in the world, and the light and secondary radiation derived from its lasers will provide new interdisciplinary research opportunities to the international scientific user community. In addition, the 6th International Conference on Attosecond Physics (ATTO 2017) will be held in Xi'an, China, 2-7 July 2017. This confluence of events is the backbone of this feature issue in JOSA B highlighting research on attosecond science and technology.
The JOSA B feature issue will include papers from ELI and expanded papers based on results presented at ATTO 2017, as well as contributions from the broader international community on the science and technology of attosecond optical science.
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work, and will be subject to the normal standards and peer-review process of the journal. OSA's policy on expanded conference papers can be found here.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual guidelines for submission to JOSA B and must be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system. When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Attosecond science and technology feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu).
