Call for Papers

The IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics (JSTQE) invites manuscript submissions in Nanobiophotonics. Nanobiophotonics is an advanced field of modern science and biomedical nanotechnology. It has been leading recently to the development of innovative nanotechnologies that provide noninvasive optical imaging, sensing, precise diagnostics and therapeutics at cellular, intracellular and molecular levels with an unprecedented ultrahigh resolution beyond the diffraction barrier in the sub-wavelength nanoscale range (below 100 nm). The IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics (JSTQE) invites manuscript submissions in the area of Nanobiophotonics. The purpose of this issue of JSTQE is to highlight the recent progress and trends in developing of leading-edge nanobiophotonics technologies. Areas of interest include (but not limited to):

Light Sciences and Technologies (Photonics) will play a relevant role in the envisioned Smart Factory of the fourth Industrial revolution (Industry 4.0). The IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics (JSTQE) invites manuscript submissions in Photonics for Industry 4.0 which concerns with the automatic collection of data from machines, processes, applications, and transforming that data into immediate insights. Design, simulation, fabrication equipment and processes, on-line failure detection, quality control, safety and security, and storage, among others, must be all integrated in a factory system. Smart factories must be driven by intelligence on demand.
