Novel Optical and Photonic Devices based on 2D Materials

Submission Opens: 1 October 2019
Submission Deadline: 1 November 2019

Optical applications for two-dimensional (2D) materials, including light generation, modulation, and detection, have seen significant popularization over a wide wavelength range from the visible to the mid-infrared region. In the past decade, 2D materials have been used in high-speed optical detectors/modulators, optical sources, all-optical information processors, ultrafast laser generation, second or third harmonic generation, and more. More recently, use of 2D materials has expanded into biophotonics, such as 2D-materials-based photothermal therapy and photoacoustic imaging for medical treatment. Moreover, the combination of 2D materials with photonic/plasmonic integrated circuits and nanostructures has enabled the design and fabrication of various on-chip photonic devices.

The aim of this issue is to highlight cutting-edge research that provides new insights into optical and photonic devices based on 2D materials. We welcome submissions covering recent advances in the general areas of 2D-material-based optical properties and photonic applications.

Topics to be covered include but are not limited to:

  • On-chip integration using 2-D materials for photo-detectors, optical modulators and switches, LEDs or lasers, etc., including new single-photon sources and detectors;
  • Optical nonlinear effects (e.g. SHG, THG, FWM) in 2-D materials and their applications, such as signal processing, wavelength conversion, phase or intensity modulation, noise suppression, imaging, etc;
  • Solar cells, photo catalysts, and plasmonics based on 2D materials;
  • Biophotonics, imaging, and sensing applications using 2D materials, such as laser photo-thermal or photodynamic therapy, photo-acoustic imaging, ultra-sensitive bio-detection, etc.

All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work, and will be subject to the normal criteria and peer-review process of the Journal.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 "Novel Optical and Photonic Devices based on 2D Materials" feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu).
