Applied Optics publishes in-depth peer-reviewed content about applications-centered research in optics. These articles cover research in optical technology, photonics, lasers, information processing, sensing and environmental optics.
Applied Optics' research articles should:
- Concentrate on practical applications of science and technology,
- Introduce new science or technology by either increasing understanding of existing research or reporting novel applications,
- Include the development and performance of technologies when applying theories,
- Provide sufficient background, detail, and explanation so that others can reproduce the results, and so that the significance of the work is clear.
In addition to original research articles, invited review articles, and comments on published articles, Applied Optics is now publishing Engineering and Laboratory Notes (E&L Notes). E&L Notes are brief articles devoted to the design, analysis, fabrication, integration, alignment, and measurement techniques used when creating optical components and systems. E&L Notes offers a unique way to publish observations from your engineering notebook in Applied Optics.
