APL Photonics

Members, log in for full details

The name APL Photonics is about values and community. “APL” stands for the values we share with our parent (Applied Physics Letters) and sister (APL Materials) journals - promoting significant advances and novel understandings in our fields through research reports that are driven forward by peer-review. As a new, open access journal for the photonics community, APL Photonics expands on these values and is the home for fundamental and applied multidisciplinary research anchored in photonics, and the platform for next-generation innovations in the field.

In response to the diverse community and its communication needs the Journal features Articles, Letters, and Special content – specifically Invited Articles, Perspectives, Tutorials and Special Topic sections – see the Editorial Policies guide for details on the different article types.

Covered topics include:

  • Light sources
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Optoelectronics
  • Nanophotonics
  • Plasmonics
  • Biophotonics and Biomedical optics
  • Ultrafast photonics
  • Optical communications
  • Quantum photonics
  • Optical imaging
  • Photovoltaics
  • Guided wave optics
  • Sensors
  • Terahertz
