Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photonic materials and devices play a critically important role in telecommunications, information processing and storage, chemical sensors, solar cells, light emitting diodes, magneto-optic memories, video systems, color imaging and other important applications. They encompass a wide variety of materials and material technologies including wide band-gap semiconductors, materials for magnetic data storage, diamond materials for extra-bright display screens, micro-materials for next-generation displays, semiconductor laser materials and more. Recent progress has led to spectacular advances in light flow and light-matter interaction control through photonic crystal technology, light trapping in thin films for solar cell applications, photonic crystal fibers, the control, understanding and application of light at the nanoscale through nanophotonics, controlling the flow of light below the diffraction limit, plasmonics and optical metamaterials. The discovery and development of new photonic materials has been and continues to play a vital role in the development of information technology, a critical technology in the 21st century. It has led to the development of semiconductor lasers, optical fibers and amplifiers central to high bandwidth telecommunications networks. The exploitation of new optical phenomena and the development of optical devices create opportunities for advances in optical memory storage, holographic and magneto-optic storage. Continued advances will depend on continued reduction in the cost of photonic components, increased functionality and increased levels of integration. In this special issue we aim at covering recent progress and novel trends in the fields of photonic materials and devices and invite experimental, theoretical, and computational papers ranging from basic research and new design ideas to novel materials, material structures and the development of advanced fabrication techniques, characterization methods and applications of photonic materials.
