On the cover: Efficiency-enhanced reflective nanosieve holograms

The image on the cover for Chinese Optics Letters Volume 20, Issue 5, reports reflective photon nanosieves that consist of metallic meta-mirrors sitting on a transparent quartz substrate. Upon illumination, these meta-mirrors offer the reflectance of ∼50%, which is higher than the transmission of visible light through diameter-identical nanoholes.The image is based on original research by Samia Osman Hamid Mohammed et al. presented in their paper "Efficiency-enhanced reflective nanosieve holograms", Chinese Optics Letters 20 (5), 053602. (2022)

On the cover: N-polar InGaN/GaN nanowires: overcoming the efficiency cliff of red-emitting micro-LEDs

The image on the cover for Photonics Research Volume 10, Issue 4, reports the demonstration of an N-polar InGaN/GaN nanowire sub-microscale LED emitting in the red spectrum that can overcome the efficiency cliff of conventional red-emitting micro-LEDs. The image is based on original research by A. Pandey et al. presented in their paper "N-polar InGaN/GaN nanowires: overcoming the efficiency cliff of red-emitting micro-LEDs", Photonics Research 10 (4), 04001107 (2022).

About the cover: Revealing complex optical phenomena through vectorial metrics

The image on the cover for Advanced Photonics Volume 4 Issue 2 illustrates a schematic of a Mueller matrix measurement system and a conceptional Mueller matrix of the sample (4x4 matrix), as well as the related vectorial properties of the light beams.The image is based on original research presented in the article by Chao He, Jintao Chang, Patrick S. Salter, Yuanxing Shen, Ben Dai, Pengcheng Li, Yihan Jin, Samlan Chandran Thodika, Mengmeng Li, Tariq Aziz, Jingyu Wang, Jacopo Antonello, Yang Dong, Ji Qi, Jianyu Lin, Daniel S. Elson, Min Zhang, Honghui He, Hui Ma, and Martin J. Booth, “ Revealing complex optical phenomena through vectorial metrics,” Adv. Photon. 4(2), 026001 (2022), doi 10.1117/1.AP.4.2.026001.

On the Cover: Highly integrated photonic crystal bandedge lasers monolithically grown on Si substrates

The image on the cover for Chinese Optics Letters Volume 20, Issue 4, indicates that an InAs/GaAs quantum dot photonic crystal bandedge laser, which is directly grown on an on-axis Si (001) substrate, which provides a feasible route towards a low-cost and large-scale integration method for light sources on the Si platform was achieved under the pumping condition of a continuous-wave 632.8 nm He–Ne gas laser at room temperature.The image is based on original research by Yaoran Huang et al. presented in their paper "Highly integrated photonic crystal bandedge lasers monolithically grown on Si substrates", Chinese Optics Letters 20 (4), 041401 (2022).
