Optics in Africa - Joint Feature Issue of JOSA A and JOSA B
May 18, 2020
Submissions Open: 15 March 2020 Submission Deadline: 1 June 2020
JOSA A and JOSA B are soliciting papers to highlight the excellence in optical research presently underway in Africa, with particular emphasis on work by the growing body of young emerging researchers there. This feature issue will provide researchers in Africa with the opportunity to share their current work and will not only cover research advances, but also present a perspective on challenges and opportunities, including impact on society, through studies that address continental issues. It will also present some historical context and research on education, society, as well national and continental initiatives in optics. With its long history and emerging excellence, the time is opportune to showcase optics in Africa—optics by Africans, and optics to solve African problems.
