Frontiers in Optics and Photonics

This book, which covers some of the most advanced topics in optics and photonics, is the result of a COVID-19 benefit issue of Nanophotonics in early 2020. Tens of authors have contributed to this project, and the money raised was donated to support first-aid workers and people in need around the globe.

The book’s more than 750 pages are divided into ten parts, dealing with integrated photonics; lasers; optical communications; biomedical photonics; fundamentals of optics; optimization methods; topological photonics; quantum computing, quantum optics and QED; plasmonics; and meta-optics. Inside these parts, you will find 10 perspective articles, 12 reviews and 41 research-related chapters. The book is clearly written by leading scientists and beautifully illustrated. I add here my own modest contribution, inviting anybody working in optics and photonics to read this fascinating book.

Review by Mircea Dragoman, National Research and Development Institute in Microtechnology, Romania.
