Call for Papers
The IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics (JSTQE) invites manuscript submissions in Nonlinear Integrated Photonics. The field of Nonlinear Integrated Photonics has opened up new horizons in optical signal processing, quantum technologies, and sensing by leveraging the strong light-matter interactions available at the nanoscale. The ample functionality enabled by nonlinear optical effects, combined with the potential for dense integration and high-speed low-power operation of nanophotonic devices, has turned this field in one of the most thriving scientific areas. The IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics invites manuscript submissions in the area of Nonlinear Integrated Photonics. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
Progress on nonlinear integrated optical sources
･ Integrated frequency combs, mode-locked lasers, and supercontinuum sources and their applications in telecommunications, data centers, and sensing
･ Microcavity Brillouin lasers and on-chip Raman lasers
･ THz-sources on nonlinear integrated platforms
Advances on nonlinear integrated photonics for quantum applications
･ Nonlinear integrated photonics for quantum sources such as heralded single-photon generation, entangled photon-pairs generation, and squeezed states of light.
･ Spectral translation of quantum light in χ(2) media, periodically poled χ(2) media, and χ(3) media
･ Quantum photon-photon interactions in integrated platforms towards quantum-by-quantum control, all-optical deterministic quantum logic, single-photon switches and transistors
Nonlinear optical effects in novel material platforms and structured media
･ Progress in on-chip nonlinear novel material platforms: Titanium dioxide, (thin film) lithium niobate, (ultra)silicon rich nitride, silicon carbide, and others.
･ Nonlinearity-enhancement using metasurfaces, plasmonics, graphene-loaded waveguides, and others.
･ Nonlinearities in topological and PT-symmetric nanophotonic structures
Nonlinear optics applications in telecommunications, data centers, and sensing
