ACS Photonics (AP) is a scholarly journal dedicated to publishing research in the field of Physics and Astronomy. American Chemical Society is the publisher of this esteemed journal. and its abbreviated form is ACS Photonics.

Aim and Scope

Journal Scope

ACS Photonics is an interdisciplinary forum to communicate on the latest advances in the field of photonics, all the way from basic research to applied research and technology. Embracing the transversality of photonics, it connects scientists and technologists from a broad scientific spectrum, at the interface between physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. It also aims at bridging the gap between the academic and industrial worlds.

The first goal of ACS Photonics is to publish, through both Letters and full Articles, original and timely research which addresses important questions in the field of photonics. Novelty, high technical quality, significance, potential impact, and readability are among the main criteria considered for acceptance.

ACS Photonics also offers the community inspiring views from leading experts on cutting-edge research in two additional publication types: comprehensive Reviews that give an objective overview of the topic to date and Perspectives that are shorter, more opiniated and forward looking.

Areas targeted by the journal include the following:

  • Nanophotonics, including plasmonics and polaritonics, optical metamaterials and metasurfaces
  • Optical materials, including quantum/topological materials, 2D materials and phase change materials
  • AI for photonics (e.g. inverse design) and photonics for AI (e.g. optical computing)
  • Integrated photonics
  • Light sources including new classes of lasing devices and LED with improved performance and new integration strategies
  • Photodetection including new device principles, device physics and device architectures
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Quantum photonics
  • Photonics-based wearables
  • Virtual and augmented reality
  • Photonics for energy, including photonic enhancement to solar energy harvesting, waste heat harvesting (thermophotovoltaics), and wireless photonic energy transmission
  • Biophotonics, advanced optical imaging, photonics-based biosensing
  • Optical trapping and optical manipulation
  • Optomechanics
  • Fundamentals of light-matter interaction
  • Electron-beam spectroscopies and ultrafast electron microscopy
  • Terahertz Photonics, including devices, imaging and spectroscopy
