Optical Materials Express Feature Announcement

Planar Oxide Photonic Materials and Devices

Submission Opens: 1 April 2018
Submission Deadline: 1 June 2018

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:

  • High index oxides and metasurfaces—Novel oxide thin materials and nanostructures for planar lenses, holograms, polarization-sensitive components and structural color printing applications.
  • Nonlinear oxide thin films and integrated photonic devices—Growth and planar photonic device integration of oxide thin films with high optical nonlinearity, including second/third order and higher order oxide nonlinear optical materials for optical modulators, switches, and other photonic devices applications.
  • Magneto-optical oxides and nonreciprocal photonic devices—Including but not limited to semiconductor integration of magneto-optical oxide thin films, magneto-optical oxide based planar nonreciprocal photonic devices such as optical isolators, circulators, magnetoplasmonic devices, and magneto-photonic crystals.
  • Transparent conductive oxides and tunable photonic devices—Transparent conductive oxide based electro-optic modulators and switching devices, active quantum nanophotonics and plasmonics, tunable polaritonic, and exciton-based devices, control of parity-time symmetry breaking such as lasing and anti-lasing, dynamic wave front control structures, and reconfigurable devices for analogue compute algorithms and networks.

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.
