Aims & Scope


Optics and Photonics Journal (OPJ) is an international, specialized, English-language journal devoted to publication of original contributions in all areas of optics and photonics. The Journal disseminates new results in the theory, design, applications, fabrication, performance and characterization of optics and photonics materials including bio-related functions such as bio-optics, bio-photonics and also optoelectronics. The journal is also devoted to challenging and innovating methods and techniques related to the development of optics and photonics materials, characterization and applications. It is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal describing scientific and technological advances that cover the basic sciences, engineering aspects and applied technology including among others topics:


  • · All related associated materials and characterization techniques development
  • · Bio-induced optical materials and applications
  • · Bio-photonics
  • · Imaging processes
  • · Laser spectroscopy
  • · Light wave communication systems
  • · Nanophotonics
  • · Nonlinear optics
  • · Optical fibers
  • · Photonic crystals
  • · Quantum optics
  • · Waveguides

  • The journal publishes the highest quality original full articles, communications, notes, reviews, special issues and books, covering both the experimental and theoretical aspects including but not limited to the above materials, techniques and studies. Papers are acceptable provided they report important findings, novel insights or useful techniques within the scope of the journal. All manuscript must be prepared in English and are subjected to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy.
