BELLINGHAM, Wash., USA -- The Photonics Society of Poland has announced the launch on 31 March of a new electronic letters journal, Photonics Letters of Poland, published in cooperation with SPIE.

"Photonics Letters of Poland continues Poland's long-standing tradition of high-quality research and leadership in photonics, optics, and other sciences," said SPIE President María Yzuel. "SPIE is proud to be connected to this new journal. We have deep respect for the photonics community in Poland as a result of many years of close association in advancing optics and photonics research and education."

Editor in Chief is Ryszard Romaniuk, Warsaw Univ. of Technology. He is assisted by an editorial board composed of Polish researchers active in optics and photonics, as well as an international advisory board of prominent international experts and scientists in the field. Romaniuk is a Fellow of SPIE.

The journal covers topics in optics, optoelectronics, and photonics in the areas of fundamental and applied research, physics and technical, materials, components, devices, circuits, systems, technology, design, construction, manufacturing, and metrology, Romaniuk said.

The journal will be published quarterly and can be accessed at photonics.pl/PLP/index.php/letters/issue/current.
