Thanks to Open Access all articles are freely available to the academic community worldwide.

Aims and Scope

Nanophotonics covers recent international research results, specific developments in the field and novel applications. Every issue contains a balanced combination of invited review articles, regular articles, letters and opinionated reports. Nanophotonics focuses on the interaction of photons with nano-structures, such as carbon nano-tubes, nano metal particles, nano crystals, semiconductor nano dots, photonic crystals, tissue and DNA. The journal covers the latest developments for physicists, engineers and material scientists, working in fields related to:

  • Plasmonics: metallic nanostructures and their optical properties
  • Meta materials, fundamentals and applications
  • Nanophotonic concepts and devices for solar energy harvesting and conversion
  • Near-field optical microscopy
  • Nanowaveguides and devices
  • Nano Lasers
  • Nanostructures, nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanowires, nanofibers
  • Photonic crystals
  • Integrated silicon photonics
  • Semiconductor quantum dots
  • Quantum optics & Quantum information
  • Ultrafast and nonlinear pulse propagation in nano materials and structures
  • Light-matter interaction, optical manipulation techniques
  • Nano-biophotonics
  • Optofluidics
  • Optomechanics
  • System applications based on nanophotonic devices
  • Nanofabrication techniques, thin film processing, self-assembly

Type of Publication:

Physicists, Engineers and Material Scientists, in public and private research.
