COL Special Issue Announcement:Ultrafast Optics: fundamentals and applications

Chinese Optics Letters (COL) invites high quality articles for a Special Issue on Ultrafast Optics: fundamentals and applications to be published in Oct. 2022. Ultrafast laser science and technology have profoundly affected our understanding of nature and our ability to transform the world. By concentrating the light energy into picosecond (10-12 s), femtosecond (10-15 s) and even attosecond (10-18 s) time scale, ultrashort intense laser pulse can be used to change material properties or visualize ultrafast dynamics. This issue is related to the generation of ultrashort laser source and its applications in light-matter interaction and to the related imaging or detection techniques.


All interested authors are invited to submit their newest results for possible publication in this Special Issue. In these regards, the scope of this special focus, covers all aspects of recent advances in ultrafast optics, from fundamental research to cutting-edge applications. Specific areas of interest in Ultrafast Optics, but not limited to:


● Ultrafast laser source

● Ultrafast imaging and detection

● Ultrafast strong field physics

● Femtosecond comb and spectroscopy

● Ultrafast dynamics in materials

● Applications of ultrafast optics in Interdisciplinary
