The rapid-publication, open-access, electronic OSA journal, Optical Materials Express (OMEx), is planning a feature issue on planar oxide photonic materials and their applications. Papers will cover recent advances in the area of planar oxide photonic materials and devices.
Oxide photonic materials are widely applied in a variety of applications, including imaging, sensing, and optical communications. Driven by planar integration of photonic systems, the field of planar oxide photonic materials and devices, including the growth, device design, nanofabrication, characterization and application of oxide photonic thin films, has witnessed significant progress in the past decade. The rich physics of light-matter interaction in such materials at the micron/nanoscale has also promoted emergence of a series of novel photonic devices. Examples include the design and fabrication of oxide metasurfaces for wavefront engineering, growth and device integration of nonlinear/ferromagnetic oxide thin films on semiconductor substrates, as well as exploration of conductive oxide thin films for tunable photonic device applications.
Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
All papers must present original, previously-unpublished work, and be subject to the normal standards and peer-review process of the journal. Papers will appear in Optical Materials Express online upon acceptance.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual guidelines for submission to Optical Materials Express, and be uploaded through OSAs electronic submission system (http://www.opticsinfobase.org/ome/journal/ome/author.cfm). When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Planar Oxide Photonic Materials and Devices feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu). The standard OMEx publication charges will apply to all published articles.
