Optics Express welcomes submissions to a feature issue on "Liquid Crystals beyond Displays." The most popular application of liquid crystals (LC) has been liquid crystal displays (LCD), but now other display technologies such as OLED and micro-LED are being used in many applications. However, more and more photonic devices and systems based on LC phase modulations are being proposed, such as fiber communications, tunable lenses, gratings, lidar, and lasers, and many countries have invested enormously in LCD technology. This issue will focus on these applications related to liquid crystals aside from displays.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer review processes of the journal. The standard Optics Express Article Processing Charges will apply to all published articles. To be eligible for publication, an expanded conference paper needs to add substantial and/or significant new information to the original conference summary. Please see OSA's guidelines on expanded conference papers for details.
Please prepare manuscripts according to the author instructions for submission to Optics Express and submit through OSA's electronic submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the Feature Issue on Liquid Crystals beyond Displays.
