Call for Papers:
Nanoscale Integrated Photonics
for Optical Networks

Keren Bergman, Coordinating Associate Editor
Madeleine Glick, Guest Feature Editor

Submission Deadline: 1 August 2006

Recent dramatic advances in nanoscale materials and nanophotonic device fabrication have yielded unprecedented control over the optical properties of synthetic structures. These extraordinary innovations at the nanoscale offer the possibility of creating high-functionality photonic devices in ultradense integration platforms. We can now envision nanoscale integrated photonics modules that may be application-specific designed in a similar fashion to integrated electronics for applications ranging from ultra-long-haul telecommunications to on-chip networks and high-performance computing. The applications of these advances to the transformation of optical networking is the theme of this Journal of Optical Networking (JON) feature issue.

Scope of Submission

The Editors of JON are soliciting papers on Nanoscale Integrated Photonics for Optical Networks. The aim in this feature issue is to publish original research on topics including--but not limited to--the following nanoscale materials and device fabrication as related to

  • Novel optical network architectures
  • Photonic switching fabrics and network elements
  • Advances enabling new network functionalities such as novel solutions for optical buffering, packet or label processing, and routing modules
  • Miniature mux/demux technology
  • Application-specific design
  • Integration and high-volume manufacture of photonics devices/modules
  • Network interface and control planes

Manuscript Submission

To submit to this special issue, follow the normal procedure for submission to JON and select ``Integration' in the features indicator of the online submission form. For all other questions relating to this feature issue, please send an e-mail to jon@osa.org, subject line ``Integration.'
