OSA Publishing

Optics Express is the all-electronic, open access journal for optics providing rapid publication for peer-reviewed articles that emphasize scientific and technology innovations in all aspects of optics and photonics.

Additionally, Optics Express publishes papers dedicated to new developments in the science and engineering of light and their impact on sustainable energy, the environment, and green technologies in its supplement, Energy Express. These papers are published online as they are ready, but are also combined for readers into a bimonthly dedicated supplement.

For details about the scope of Optics Express with regards to digital image processing, see the editorial published in April 2014.

Optics Express considers original research articles, special issue contributions, invited reviews and comments on published articles.
