Photonics and Nanostructures - Fundamentals and Applications: Elsevier Journal

This journal establishes a dedicated channel for physicists, material scientists, chemists, engineers and computer scientists who are interested in photonic crystals and photonic band gaps. The Journal will help shed light on the latest developments in this growing field of science that will see the emergence of faster telecommunications and ultimately computers that use light instead of electrons to connect components. The Journal features mainly original research work in experiment, theory and applications.

The journal covers the following areas of research: physics, chemistry, engineering optoelectronics and computers science related to applications in photonic crystals and photonic band gaps. Papers suitable for publication in this journal cover topics such as

  • Theory of photonic crystals and related micro- and nanophotonic materials
  • Investigation and characterization of photonic crystal properties including optical nonlinearities, photonic band gap effects, spontaneous emission, etc.
  • Fabrication of photonic structures and devices using various methods, including lithography, self-assembly, holography, etc.
  • Subwavelength optics of structured materials
  • Metallic and metallo-dielectric photonic structures
  • Structures for Terahertz optics
  • Plasmonics
  • Metamaterials and left-handed metamaterials
  • Photonic crystal fibers and "holey" fibers
  • Micro- and nanophotonic devices such as optical waveguides, switches, lasers, and other components of optical integrated circuits,
  • Integration of photonic crystals
  • Micro-optical-electro-mechanical-systems (MOEMS)
  • Optical microcavities and photonic "dots"
  • Novel approaches to micro- and nanophotonics
  • Critical assessment of new application fields (light sources, lasers, biophotonics, detectors, optical components, atom and molecule confinement)
