To celebrate the 2018 International Day of Light, we would like to share with you a selection of high-quality articles published across our optical physics and photonics portfolio.
Each article has been selected by the journal editors based on key criteria, including their interdisciplinary focus, potential future impact in the field, as well as a high level of interest in the work amongst journal readers.
All of these articles are free to read for a limited period of time, or are open access.
