JQE Cover

IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics

Dedicated to the publication of research reporting novel, theoretical or experimental results in the field of quantum electronics, the Journal of Quantum Electronics is published monthly to address new developments or phenomena that impact continuing research or advance the technological base of quantum electronics.


IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics

Published six times a year to address original theoretical and/or experimental research results that advance the scientific and technological base of quantum electronics, each issue of the Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics is devoted to a specific topic within the quantum electronics field. Tutorial and review papers are by invitation only.


IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology

Dedicated to covering original, theoretical and/or experimental work that advances the technology base of guided wave science, the IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology is published semimonthly by seven IEEE Societies and the The Optical Society. Topics include: fiber and cable technologies, active and passive guided-wave componentry, integrated optics/optoelectronics, as well as new applications and field trials.


IEEE/OSA Journal of Optical Communications & Networking

Published monthly by the IEEE Photonics Society, IEEE Communications Society and The Optical Society, the IEEE/OSA Journal of Optical Communications & Networking covers advances in both theoretical contributions to state-of-theart optical communications and networking as well as practical applications in a broad range of optical networking technologies.


IEEE/OSA Journal of Display Technology

Published quarterly by seven IEEE Societies and The Optical Society, the Journal of Display Technology is an archival journal dedicated to the timely dissemination of new research in display technologies from basic science and engineering of display devices to display materials, components, drivers and interfaces, as well as lighting technology and applications.
