Best of Advanced Optical Materials – Now online


Welcome to our collection of the most outstanding articles published in Advanced Optical Materials in the preceding twelve months. Advanced Optical Materials is a member of our family of leading materials science journals and provides an outlet for the work on all aspects of light-matter interactions.

Articles selected for the Best of Advanced Optical Materials 2014 include a review article on solid-state lighting, a progress report on optically active polymer-based nanowires and nanotubes as well as articles on topics like metamaterials, detectors, optoelectronic devices, light trapping, photonic nanostructures or quantum dots.

Advanced Optical Materials is published on Wiley Online Library in twelve online issues per year, with articles available in EarlyView as soon as they are ready. Advanced Optical Materials is a fully electronic journal and offers optional open access through participating in Wiley’s OnlineOpen scheme.

Full details of the journal, including the Author Guidelines can be found on The submission site can be accessed at

Make sure to recommend the journal for online access to your librarian. Subscription information can be found here.

We hope that you will find the selection of articles as stimulating as we did and we encourage you to continue submitting your best manuscripts to Advanced Optical Materials.
