Biomedical Optics Feature Announcement
Novel Techniques in Microscopy
Submission Deadline: 15 June 2013
We are pleased to announce a feature issue of Biomedical Optics Express associated with the OSA topical meeting Novel Techniques in Microscopy, held at the Optics in the Life Sciences Congress in Waikoloa Beach, Hawaii, 14-18 April 2013. The feature issue welcomes papers presented at the conference, as well as related papers from authors who were not able to attend.
The Novel Techniques in Microscopy topical meeting, for which this will be the third bi-annual edition, has become the pre-eminent international meeting focused on the development of new and creative techniques in optical microscopy for biological or biomedical applications. Advances in optical microscopy are continually enhancing imaging performance and versatility. Examples include increasing depth penetration in scattering media, improving resolution beyond the diffraction limit, increasing speed, enhancing sensitivity and/or specificity, developing novel contrast mechanisms, addressing challenges related to intravital imaging, and more. This meeting and the associated feature issue will provide a rich collection of fresh and creative technical developments in optical microscopy for biological or biomedical applications.
Topics of interest for the feature issue include:
- Microscopy in scattering tissue
- Super-resolution microscopy
- Advances in multi-photon microscopy
- Nonlinear microscopy and coherent techniques
- Optical coherence microscopy, holographic and quantitative phase microscopy
- Fiberscopes and micro-endoscopy techniques
Biomedical Optics Express is OSA's principal outlet serving the biomedical optics community, featuring rapid, open-access publication of content related to optics, photonics and imaging in the life sciences. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts that make use of the special features of Biomedical Optics Express and are particularly germane to biomedical content, such as inclusion of color figures, movies, and Interactive Science Publishing -- interactive presentation of 2D and 3D image data (see www.opticsinfobase.org/isp).
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to Biomedical Optics Express and must be uploaded through OSAs electronic-submission system (http://www.opticsinfobase.org/boe/journal/boe/author.cfm). When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Novel Techniques in Microscopy feature issue. Please note that submissions to the feature issues incur the normal publication fees for Biomedical Optics Express.
