Journal of the Optical Society of America B Announcement

Laser Interaction with Materials

Submissions Open: 1 May 2018
Submission Deadline: 1 June 2018

JOSA B is planning a feature issue highlighting expanded versions of selected papers presented at the 2018 International High Power Laser Ablation Symposium (HPLA), which will be held 26-29 March 2018. Papers will cover research concerning laser-materials interaction. Only authors invited by the Feature Issue Editors to expand their conference papers may submit for this issue.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Ultra-high intensity lasers: from Earth to cosmos
  • Ultrashort pulse effects
  • Ultrafast materials processing
  • Laser-materials interaction in a liquid environment
  • Laser modification of surface microstructure and morphology
  • Femtosecond repetitive action on materials
  • Theory and simulation
  • Thermal and mechanical coupling for ultrashort pulses
  • Laser direct writing
  • Laser-induced shock applications
  • MAPLE and materials processing
  • New results in high-power lasers and their applications
  • Promising new laser and optical technologies
  • Biological applications
  • Next generation beamed energy propulsion
  • Plasmonics and metamaterials

All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer-review processes of the journals. The standard JOSA B publication charges will apply to all published articles. To be eligible for publication, the paper needs to add significant new information to the original conference summary. See OSA's guidelines on expanded conference papers for details.

Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to JOSA B and must be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the Feature Issue on Laser Interaction with Materials 2018.
