APPLIED PHYSICS B -- LASERS & OPTICS
Applied Physics has been
founded in 1973 by H.K.V. Lotsch and is an international journal for the rapid
publication of experimental and theoretical investigations in applied research.
It is issued in two parts: Applied
Physics A - Materials Science and Processing and Applied Physics B - Lasers and Optics. Both parts appear monthly in
issues of varying size. Six issues constitute one volume, and two volumes are
normally published per year.
Applied Physics B
covers the broad field of laser physics, linear and nonlinear optics, ultrafast
phenomena, photonic devices, optical and laser materials, quantum optics, laser
spectroscopy of atoms, molecules and clusters, and use of laser radiation in
chemistry and biochemistry. In addition to regular papers Applied Physics B features invited reviews. Fields of topical
interest are covered by feature issues. The journal also includes a rapid
communication section for the speedy publication of important and
particularly interesting results. Instructions how to prepare and submit
manuscripts are to be found on an extra page of the journal.
