Scope

Since the first meeting in 1998, the biannual international conference on High Power Laser Ablation (HPLA) has grown into a premier international meeting in the field of laser-material interactions, laser ablation, and numerous applications of laser ablation. It brings together the leading experts from academia, industry, and government research centers representing all leading research groups worldwide.

The participants of the conference have expressed a strong need to publish selected presentations in a peer-reviewed journal. In response, the first HPLA special section was published in 2018 in Optical Engineering. Success of the first HPLA special section has motivated another effort of the guest editors to prepare the second HPLA special section in Optical Engineering. This special section will be mainly based on the top works presented at the HPLA conference in April 2021, though authors may also submit relevant work to this special section even if they did not attend the conference.

Scope

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) have been studied intensively for solid state lighting (SSL) since their luminous efficacy exceeded 100 lm/W. The advantages of SSL include fast response, vivid color, compact size, energy savings, more design freedoms, and long life. Currently, SSL is expected to undergo more energy efficiency and lighting quality and effects related to human factors, where novel optical design approaches will play an important role yielding more uniform illumination, higher contrast for special lighting, higher signal-to-noise ratio for communications, higher efficiency in color-light projection, and more functions for new applications in indoor/outdoor or special lighting.

This special section of Optical Engineering is focused on recent progress in the field of SSL and LED optics, and its scope covers but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Novel structure in enhancing light extraction
  • Novel LED packaging for better performance
  • Phosphor technology for higher color rendering
  • New approach on light source modeling
  • Novel design in secondary optics
  • Optical design for anti-glare
  • Outdoor lighting, indoor lighting, or automotive forward lighting
  • White light with laser diodes
  • New optical designs for special lighting
  • New optical schemes in free-space communications with LEDs
  • New approach for measuring illuminance, luminance, or optical flux in large field-of-view systems
  • New applications for micro-LED, mini-LED, and LED arrays
  • New optical approach to reduce LED manufacturing cost 
  • New optical approaches to reduce yellowness or blueness in SSL

 This call for papers is open to all professionals and academics in fields related to SSL and LED optics. 

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Peer review will start immediately upon manuscript submission, with the goal of making a first decision within six weeks. Special sections are opened online once a minimum of four papers have been accepted. Each paper is published as soon as the copyedited and typeset proofs are approved by the author.

Scope

This special section will present the results of modern research in the field of infrared (IR) and terahertz (THz) optoelectronics, which have been developing rapidly in recent decades. The progress of IR and THz technologies enables a wide spectrum of fundamental and applied problems in diverse science and technology fields. Among these fields are material science, astrophysics, chemistry and biology, biotechnology, hardware cybersecurity, beyond 5G secure communications, biotechnology, industrial controls, medical diagnosis, and high-resolution and multispectral imaging modalities.

Novel and improved types of sources, detectors, and optical components for filtering, waveguiding, and radiation delivering will enable these applications. One of the key problems to resolve is improving limited efficiency and the high complexity of THz sources and THz systems. The recent emergence of the improved THz and IR quantum-cascade lasers, uncooled and multi-element detectors, novel types of photoconductive antennas, low-loss waveguides, advanced metamaterials, and THz plasmonic detectors, mixers, modulators, and amplifiers are the important steps in solving the famous THz gap problem. In turn, these achievements have spawned further applications of THz and IR optoelectronics, such as near-field and real-time imaging and high-resolution microscopy, and hardware cybersecurity THz scanning systems. The increased power of novel sources has posed a question of THz safety and dosimetry.

The section will focus on the recent progress of cutting-edge fundamental and applied trends. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Ultrafast processes in photoconductors;
  • Nonlinear effects and optical light confinement in media;
  • THz metamaterials and metasurfaces;
  • THz plasmonic devices and systems;
  • Photoconductive pulse THz devices and THz photomixers;
  • THz and IR quantum-cascade lasers;
  • IR, mid-IR, and THz tunable detectors with quantum confinement;
  • Advanced materials for THz and IR optical components;
  • THz and IR spectroscopic and imaging systems;
  • Interaction of THz and IR radiation with biological tissues;
  • Novel and improved applications of IR and THz technology.

This call for papers is open to all professionals and academics in relevant fields of terahertz and infrared optoelectronics. Participants of Saratov Fall Meeting 2020 (SFM’20 ) are especially encouraged to consider submitting to this special section.

The guest editors are also seeking comprehensive review papers in the aforementioned research fields. Authors interested in submitting a review paper to this special section should contact the guest editors via email with a brief proposal on the paper.
