Photonics Research Feature Announcement

Topological Photonics and Beyond

Submission Open: 1 May 2020
Submission Deadline: 1 July 2020

This feature issue in Photonics Research will serve as a venue for the most recent publications in the areas of emerging topological photonics and beyond, reporting recent results and innovative approaches for integrating topological physics in photonics with nonlinear, synthetic, or quantum photonic systems.

Topological photonics is one of the most active and exciting research topics in the photonics community. Both topological bandgaps in photonic metamaterials and topological features induced by exceptional points are of great interest due to their fundamental importance and applications in robust system control. This special issue aims at attracting high-profile work in the broad area of topological photonics for broad dissemination to the photonics community.

Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Topological band structures in photonics
  • Geometric and topological phases
  • Novel topological materials and concepts
  • Nonlinear and quantum topological photonics
  • Topology in meta-photonics and plasmonics
  • Topological non-Hermitian and unconventional photonics
  • Non-Hermitian spectra with exceptional points
  • Topological dynamics by encircling exceptional points
  • Artificial intelligence in topological photonics
  • Applications of topological photonics

All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer review processes of the journal. The standard Photonics Research Article Processing Charges will apply to all published articles.

Please prepare manuscripts according to the author instructions for submission to Photonics Research and submit through OSA's electronic submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the Feature Issue on Topological Photonics and Beyond.
