Physics and Applications of Laser Dynamics
Submission Opens: 1 December 2013
Submission Deadline: 13 January 2014
This Focus Issue, which will comprise invited papers only, will be based on research presented at the international symposium IS-PALD 2013 (http://conf.ncku.edu.tw/ispald/index.php), held from 29 October–31 October 2013. IS-PALD 2013 is the third one of a series of symposia on laser dynamics organized in collaboration between France and Taiwan. Only those contributions that report on the most promising results at this symposium will be invited to submit. All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work, and will undergo the same rigorous peer review as any other paper under consideration for the journal. Normal Optics Express open access charges will apply to all published articles.
Topics to be covered by the feature issue include:
- Ultrafast Laser Dynamics: Physics and engineering of ultra-short and/or high-energy pulsed lasers; generation, shaping, and processing of ultra-short and/or high-energy laser pulses; detection and characterization of ultra-short and/or high-energy laser pulses; applications of ultra-short and/or high-energy laser pulses.
- Nonlinear Laser Dynamics: Physics and engineering of nonlinear laser dynamics, including stability, bistability, periodic and aperiodic dynamics, and chaos; generation, measurement, shaping, and processing of diverse waveforms based on nonlinear laser dynamics; characterization, control, and synchronization of nonlinear laser dynamics; applications of nonlinear laser dynamics and their waveforms.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to Optics Express and must be uploaded through OSAs electronic-submission system (http://www.opticsinfobase.org/oe/journal/oe/author.cfm). When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Physics and Applications of Laser Dynamics feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu).
