Best of Advanced Optical Materials 2017

Welcome to the virtual Best of Advanced Optical Materials 2017 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 excellent research on all aspects of light–matter interactions. In 2017, Advanced Optical Materials received an Impact Factor of 6.875, an increase of 28% compared to last year’s value, underlining its strong position among top optics journals.

The articles presented in this virtual issue are written by experts from all over the world and cover a multitude of different topics, including photonics, plasmonics, metamaterials, and much more.

In August 2017, Advanced Optical Materials launched two special issues, Hot-Electron Effects in Plasmonics and Plasmonic Materials, guest-edited by Anatoly V. Zayats and Stefan Maier, and Chirality and Nanophotonics, guest-edited by Ventsislav K. Valev, Alexander O. Govorov, and John Pendry.

Advanced Optical Materials has doubled its volume from 12 to 24 issues last year, which all are published on Wiley Online Library. All articles are available in EarlyView as soon as they are accepted and ready. Advanced Optical Materials is an online-only journal and offers optional open access through Wiley OnlineOpen.

More information about the journal can be found at The submission site can be accessed at

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

We hope that you will enjoy reading our selection of articles and we look forward to seeing also your best work in Advanced Optical Materials!
