Optical Materials Express Feature Announcement
Optical Materials for Flat Panel Displays
Submission Opens: 1 December 2013
Submission Deadline: 1 February 2014
The rapid-publication, open-access electronic journal Optical Materials Express (OMEx) is planning a feature issue on Optical Materials for Flat Panel Displays to be published in the May 2014 issue. We are soliciting original contributed papers on recent advances in a broad spectrum of organic and inorganic optical materials for display applications, including but not limited to novel liquid-crystalline materials, (photo)alignment layer materials, reactive mesogens, (organic) light-emitting diodes, phosphors, electroluminescent materials, quantum-dot materials, field emitters, electrophoretic and electrochromic materials, dyes and pigments and their dispersions, polymers and polymeric composites, transparent oxide and substrate materials, optical plates and films, and other passive component materials applied to various 2D and 3D emissive displays, flexible displays, non-emissive displays and projection displays. Papers on advances in processing and devices are welcome, but the emphasis should be on the properties of the optical materials rather than the device design.
All papers need to present original, previously unpublished work, and will be subject to the normal criteria and peer-review process of the journal. The regular publication charges for the journal will apply. Papers will be published online in Optical Materials Express upon completion.
Manuscripts must be prepared according to the standard author instructions for submission to Optical Materials Express and submitted through OSA's online submission system. When submitting, please specify that the manuscript is for the Optical Materials for Flat Panel Displays feature issue (choose from the drop-down menu).
