Aims and Scope

Advanced Optical Materials is an international, interdisciplinary forum for peer-reviewed papers on materials science which focuses on all aspects of light-matter interactions. Advanced Optical Materials was published as a special focus section integrated in Advanced Materials in 2012 and launched as a journal at the start of 2013. In 2015 Advanced Optical Materials received its first ever impact factor. With this partial one-year impact factor of 4.06 the journal underlines its position among top optics journals.

The scope of Advanced Optical Materials is dedicated to breakthrough discoveries and fundamental research in photonics, plasmonics, metamaterials, and more. The following is a non-exhaustive list of the topics covered in Advanced Optical Materials:

  • Photonic crystals
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Optical nanostructures
  • Optoelectronics
  • Optical devices, detectors & sensors
  • Holography
  • Opto-acoustic materials
  • Optical data storage
  • Micro/nano resonators
  • Optical waveguides

Advanced Optical Materials contains an attractive mix of Communications, Full papers, Review Articles, Progress Reports, and Essays with the same article specifications as Advanced Materials.For more information please see
