About Advanced Photonics

  • Aims and Scope

    Advanced Photonics (AP) is co-published by Chinese Laser Press (CLP) at the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics (SIOM) and The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). AP is a highly selective, open-access, international journal that publishes innovative research in all areas of optics and photonics, including fundamental and applied research. The journal publishes top-quality original papers, letters, and review articles, reflecting significant advances and breakthroughs in theoretical and experimental research and novel applications with considerable potential.


    The journal seeks high-quality, high-impact articles across the entire spectrum of optics, photonics, and related fields with specific emphasis on the following acceptance criteria:


    • New concepts in terms of fundamental research with great impact and significance

    • State-of-the-art technologies in terms of novel methods for important applications

    • Reviews of recent major advances and discoveries and state-of-the-art benchmarking.


    The journal also publishes news and commentaries highlighting scientific and technological discoveries, breakthroughs, and achievements in optics, photonics, and related fields.


    Research areas covered include, but are not limited to:


    • Photonic devices and systems for communications

    • Photonics for clean energy

    • Photonics in chemistry, biology, and medicine

    • Optical imaging, metrology, and sensors

    • Photonics for data storage, data manipulation, and displays

    • Materials, artificial materials, and nanostructures for photonics

    • Photonics in quantum technologies

    • Nonlinear and ultrafast optics

    • Optoelectronics and optical information processing

    • Optical manipulation techniques, optomechanics, and optofluidics
