Author Biographies

Include biography text at the back of your manuscript in the following format.

First A. Author (M'76-SM'81-F'87) and the other authors may include biographies at the end of JOCN papers. This author became a Member (M) of IEEE in 1976, a Senior Member (SM) in 1981, and a Fellow (F) in 1987. Optica Membership history should also be included. The first paragraph may contain a place and/or date of birth (list place, then date). Next, the author's educational background is listed. The degrees should be listed with type of degree in what field, which institution, city, state, and country, and year degree was earned. The author's major field of study should be lower-cased.

The second paragraph uses the pronoun of the person (he or she) and not the author's last name. It lists military and work experience, including summer and fellowship jobs. Job titles are capitalized. The current job must have a location; previous positions may be listed without one. Information concerning previous publications may be included. Try not to list more than three books or published articles. The format for listing publishers of a book within the biography is: title of book (city, state: publisher name, year) similar to a reference. Current and previous research interests end the paragraph.

The third paragraph begins with the author's title and last name (e.g., Dr. Smith, Prof. Jones, Mr. Kajor, Ms. Hunter). List any memberships in professional societies other than the IEEE and Optica Publishing Group. Finally, list any awards and work for IEEE and Optica Publishing Group committees and publications. If a photograph is provided, the biography will be indented around it. The photograph is placed at the top left of the biography. Personal hobbies will be deleted from the biography.

Electronic Image (photograph) Files

Electronic images for author biographies must be submitted in EPS or TIFF format. Images should be proportioned to 1 in. × 1 ¼ in. (which is the final print size). Do not include images in your manuscript file itself.

Electronic image quality is very important to how your graphics will reproduce. Note that we cannot improve your graphics if they are poor quality when we receive them. If your graphic looks low in quality on your printer or monitor, please keep in mind that cannot improve the quality after submission. Photographs should be prepared with 300 dpi resolution and saved with no compression, 8 bits per pixel (grayscale).
