Optics Express Focus Issue
Renewable Energy and the Environment
Submission Deadline: 1 December 2013
Publication Date: March 2014
This Focus Issue will be comprised of papers from the 2013 OSA Renewable Energy and the Environment Optics and Photonics Congress, to be held 3–6 November 2013, in Tucson, Arizona, USA.
Only papers (oral or poster) accepted for the congress will be eligible for submission to this Focus Issue. This includes invited and contributed papers from the 5 conferences: Optical Instrumentation for Energy and Environmental Applications (E2), Optical Nanostructures and Advanced Materials for Photovoltaics (PV), Optics for Solar Energy (SOLAR), Solid State and Organic Lighting (SOLED) and Freeform Optics.
The issue will be published in the Energy Express supplement of The Optical Society's premier open access journal, Optics Express, featuring rapid publication of new developments in the science and engineering of light and their impact on sustainable energy, the environment, and green technologies. All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work, and will be subject to the normal standards and peer-review process of the journals. Normal Optics Express open access charges will apply to all published articles.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for submission to Optics Express and must be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission system, http://www.opticsinfobase.org/oe/journal/oe/author.cfm, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the Focus Issue on Renewable Energy and the Environment.
