Photonics Research Feature Announcement

Optical Microcavities

Submission Open: 15 May 2017
Submission Deadline: 30 July 2017

Optical microcavities have attracted tremendous interest in both fundamental and applied research over the past few decades thanks to their small footprint, easy integration, and high quality factors. Using total internal reflection from a dielectric interface or photonic band gaps in a periodic structure, these devices do not rely on conventional metal-coated mirrors to confine light in small volumes, which have brought forth new developments in both classical and quantum optics. Topics to be explored in this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel microcavity lasers and their applications
  • Optical and optomechanical sensing using microcavities
  • Wave chaos in deformed microcavities
  • Symmetry and topology protected properties in a microcavity network
  • Effects of rotation and gauge fields on optical modes
  • Cavity-enhanced light-matter interactions
  • Mode couplings and nonlinear modal interactions in optical microcavities

Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to Photonics Research; see the Information for Contributors in any printed issue or the OSA Style Guide. Manuscripts must be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system. Please specify that the manuscript is for the Optical Microcavities feature issue (choose from the feature issue drop-down menu). Manuscripts will undergo the same peer review as other papers submitted to the journal. The standard Photonics Research article processing charges will apply.
