This feature issue will comprise selected expanded papers from the 9th International Conference on Nanophotonics (ICNP), to be held on 21-25 March 2016, at Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. Approximately 50 submissions (invited and contributed) are anticipated. This conference aims to explore novel ideas in nanophotonic science and technology that might enable technological breakthroughs in high impact areas such as, but not limited to: Microscopy and Nanoscopy, Nano-optoelectronics, Metamaterials and Plasmonics, Nanofabrication, Photonic Crystals and Nanofibers, Nanocharacterization, Photonic Crystals and Lasers, Green Photonics and Photovoltaic, Self-Assembly and Nanochemistry, Nanolasers, Nanodevices and Integration, Nanobiophotonics, Quantum Optics and Computing, Silicon Photonics, and Nonlinear Optics. The guest editors will select the best papers from the conference.
All papers must present original, previously unpublished work, and will be subject to the normal standards and peer-review process of the journal. To be eligible for publication, the papers need to add substantial and/or significant new information to the original conference summary. Appropriate attribution to the conference paper must also be given in the manuscript. Normal Optics Express Article Processing Charges will apply to all published articles.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the standard author instructions for submission to Optics Express and submit through OSA's online submission system. When submitting, authors must specify that the manuscript is for the Nanophotonics feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu).
