Featured research: Focusing characteristics of a 4π parabolic mirror light-matter interface

Parabolic mirror setup © Alber et al. 2017Alber et al. examine the focusing properties of a 4π parabolic mirror that was produced by single-point diamond turning. The results show that the mirror is suitable for an efficient light-matter interface. Read the full article here.

Featured research: Complementarity in single photon interference – the role of the mode function and vacuum fields

Emitted light cone scheme © Menzel et al. 2017Menzel et al. investigate the transversal coherence of single signal photons generated via spontaneous parametric down conversion, to the analyze the role of the mode function in quantum optics regarding the complementarity principle.

Aims and scope

Rapid progress in optics and photonics has broadened its application enormously into many branches, including information and communication technology, security, sensing, bio- and medical sciences, healthcare and chemistry.

Recent achievements in other sciences have allowed continual discovery of new natural mysteries and formulation of challenging goals for optics that require further development of modern concepts and running fundamental research.

The Journal of the European Optical Society – Rapid Publications (JEOS:RP) aims to tackle all of the aforementioned points in the form of prompt, scientific, high-quality communications that report on the latest findings. It presents emerging technologies and outlining strategic goals in optics and photonics.

The journal covers both fundamental and applied topics, including but not limited to:

  • Classical and quantum optics
  • Light/matter interaction
  • Optical communication
  • Micro- and nanooptics
  • Nonlinear optical phenomena
  • Optical materials
  • Optical metrology
  • Optical spectroscopy
  • Colour research
  • Nano and metamaterials
  • Modern photonics technology
  • Optical engineering, design and instrumentation
  • Optical applications in bio-physics and medicine
  • Interdisciplinary fields using photonics, such as in energy, climate change and cultural heritage 

The journal aims to provide readers with recent and important achievements in optics/photonics and, as its name suggests, it strives for the shortest possible publication time.
