This feature issue will highlight recent advances in the field of neuromorphic photonics for light-enabled machine learning and AI systems. This includes advanced neuromorphic photonic devices for artificial optical neurons, synaptic devices, photonic memories, etc., built from key-enabling optical components such as lasers, LEDs, photodetectors, micro-resonators, modulators, and plasmonic elements. Emerging neuromorphic photonic architectures will also be highlighted including photonic (spiking/convolutional/feed-forward/recurrent) neural networks, integrated photonic-electronic neuromorphic processing systems, and photonic tensor-core systems, amongst others.
Topics to be covered include but are not limited to:
All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work, and will be subject to the normal criteria and peer-review process of the Journal. The standard OMEx publication charges will apply to all published articles.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual guidelines for submission to Optical Materials Express and must be submitted online through OSA's electronic submission system. When submitting, authors should specify that the manuscript is for the "Emerging Optical Materials, Devices and Systems for Photonic Neuromorphic Computing" feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu).
