Call for Papers


Photonic Crystal and Topological Photonics


Submission Deadline: 31 August, 2019




Photonics crystals, periodic dielectric microstructures that affect the propagation states of photons just like that ionic lattices affect electrons in solids, possesses the capability of guiding and manipulating light at the mesoscopic scale. More recently, along with the discovery of topological insulators, this field is benefited from applying the ideas of topology to photonic band structures. In order to promote research in the area of topological photonics and development of photonic devices based on topological features, Prof. Xiaoyong Hu (Peking University, China) are planning to produce a special issue on photonic crystal and topological photonics, expected to be published in the first issue of Frontiers of Optoelectronics in 2020.




This special issue will cover the most recent progress in physics, materials, structures, and applications of photonic devices based on photonic crystals with topological features. The topics include, but are not limited to:

•蜂巢晶格與狄拉克點 honeycomb lattices and Dirac points

•合成維度 synthetic dimensions

•非厄米拓撲光子學 non-Hermitian topological photonics

•旋磁光子晶體 gyromagnetic photonic crystals

•拓撲超材料 topological metamaterials

•光波的自旋-軌道耦合 spin-orbit coupling for light

•光隔離器和魯棒輸運 optical isolators and robust transport

•二維材料中的谷電子學 valleytronics in 2D materials

•量子拓撲光子學 quantum topological photonics,



• 綜述論文 review article
