Topical Issue: Optical Nanofibers and Microresonators in Applied Physics B: Lasers & Optics


Dear ONNA2019 Speakers and Participants,

Optical nanofibers and microresonators have become enormously useful in the last decade in areas ranging from atomic through optical to quantum physics. Novel applications include optical sensing, lasing, optical signal processing, atom/particle trapping, optomechanics, and nonlinear optics.  New uses are constantly emerging due to the special properties that enable both sensing and controlling of the environment with evanescent fields.

We would like to encourage you to submit your work to the topical issue of Appl. Phys. B: Lasers & Optics on “Optical Nanofibers and Microresonators”.  This topical issue is dedicated to the theory, fabrication methods, and broad applications of optical nanofibers, microresonators, or more complex devices. We cordially invite you to contribute to this topical issue, by submitting your manuscript containing new, high quality, and unpublished material before

November 30, 2019

Both reviews and original research articles will be published. All manuscripts will be subject
to a standard review procedure with respect to their degree of novelty, relevance, and quality
of presentation. Immediate and speedy reviewing is supported by online submission at

Note: Manuscripts will be published immediately within 2 weeks after acceptance.

We look forward to receiving your contribution.
