The Optical Society Announces Editorial Board for
Optical Materials Express

WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 – The Optical Society (OSA) today announced the editorial board for its newest journal Optical Materials Express (OMEx), a peer-reviewed, open-access journal focusing on optical materials that will launch in spring 2011. The editorial board is comprised of leading optics and photonics materials researchers from around the world. The associate editors are recognized, active research leaders who will set the editorial tone for the journal by taking primary responsibility for timely peer review of manuscripts submitted to the journal. They also work with the editor-in-chief to establish and implement the strategic direction for OMEx. A list of board members appears below.

Optical Materials Express will primarily emphasize 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. The subject matter covers a full range of topics in optical materials, including, but not limited to: artificially engineered structures, biomaterials, detector materials, optical storage media, materials for integrated optics, nonlinear optical materials, laser materials, metamaterials, nanomaterials, organics and polymers, soft materials, IR materials, and materials for fiber optics.
