Best of Advanced Optical Materials 2015 – Now online


For the third time in a row the editors of Advanced Optical Materials have selected some of the most outstanding articles of the year to be published in a virtual Best of Advanced Optical Materials issue.

Advanced Optical Materials is a member of Wiley’s family of leading materials science journals and provides an outlet for work on all aspects of light-matter interactions. In 2015 Advanced Optical Materials received its first ever impact factor. With this partial one-year impact factor of 4.06 the journal underlines its position among top optics journals.

Articles selected for the Best of Advanced Optical Materials 2015 include original articles written by researchers from all over the world on topics like metamaterials, photochemistry, perfect absorbers, upconversion and resonators.

Another highlight of the year is the special series of review articles dedicated to celebrate the International Year of Light. All contributions which are written by experts in their fields can be found at

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.
