About the Journal
Optical Materials Express is OSA's newest all-electronic, open-access optics journal. The journal primarily emphasizes advances in novel optical materials, their properties, modeling, synthesis and fabrication techniques; how such materials contribute to novel optical behavior; and how they enable new or improved optical devices.
