SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, has announced the launch of a new Gold Open Access journal, the Journal of Optical Microsystems (JOM), which will publish cutting-edge research of optical and photonic microsystems. Hans Zappe, co-editor-in-chief of SPIE's Journal of Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS (JM3), will serve as editor-in-chief of JOM. Concurrently, JM3 will be renamed the Journal of Micro/Nanopatterning, Materials, and Metrology, retaining its familiar acronym. JM3 co-editor-in-chief Harry J. Levinson will lead the journal, which will focus on lithographic technologies.
Since 2002, JM3 has published papers on the science, development, and practice of lithographic, fabrication, packaging, and integration technologies necessary to address the needs of the electronics, MEMS, MOEMS, and photonics industries.
The renamed JM3 will publish peer-reviewed papers on the core enabling technologies that address the patterning needs of the electronics industry. Key subject areas include the science, development, and practice of lithographic, computational, etch, and integration technologies.
JOM will publish research in all aspects of optical and photonic microsystems, from materials and fabrication of micro-optical and photonic components, through assembly and packaging, to systems and applications. JOM will open for submissions in May 2020 and all publication charges will be waived through 2021.
The Journal of Optical Microsystems and the Journal of Micro/Nanopatterning, Materials, and Metrology will be published by SPIE in the SPIE Digital Library, which contains more than 500,000 publications from SPIE journals, proceedings, and books, with approximately 18,000 new research papers added each year.
