Best of Advanced Optical Materials 2016 – Now Online

Welcome to the virtual Best of Advanced Optical Materials 2016 issue which presents the Editors’ selection of some of the most outstanding articles of the year!

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 2016 Advanced Optical Materials received its first full impact factor of 5.36 underlining its position among top optics journals.

The original articles presented in this virtual issue are written by experts from all over the world and cover a multitude of different topics including organic electronics, metamaterials research, and many more.

If you are especially interested in photochromic molecules and materials you will certainly be interested in the Special Issue from September guest edited by He Tian and Stefan Hecht.

In 2017 Advanced Optical Materials will double its number of issues to 24 which will all be published online on Wiley Online Library. All articles are 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 enjoy reading our selection of articles and we are looking forward to seeing also your best work in Advanced Optical Materials.
