Feature Issue of Applied Optics and JOSA A

Digital Holography and 3-D Imaging 2023

Submission Opens: 15 August 2023
Submission Deadline: 1 October 2023

Applied Optics and Journal of the Optical Society of America A (JOSA A) welcome submissions to a joint feature issue on "Digital Holography and 3-D Imaging" in conjunction with the Digital Holography and 3-D Imaging Topic Meeting at the Optica Imaging Congress, which will take place in a hybrid format on 14 - 17 August 2023 in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. Whereas meeting participants are particularly encouraged to submit their work, the feature issue is open to all contributions in related areas.

Techniques of digital holography and of 3-D imaging have numerous applications. The articles in this feature issue will present state-of-the-art technological developments that are currently underway and will stimulate further novel applications in biomedicine, biophotonics, nanomaterials, nanophotonics, deep learning, environmental sensing, augmented reality, head-up display, and scientific and industrial metrologies.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Advances in digital holographic techniques
  • 3D imaging and display systems
  • Computer generated holograms
  • Quantitative phase imaging
  • Lab on Chip based on holographic microscopy
  • Transport of intensity
  • Compressive holography
  • 2D & 3D image processing for digital holography & feature recognition
  • Deep learning and neural networks in digital holography and applications
  • Digital holographic microscopy
  • Digital holographic tomography
  • Digital holographic optical processing
  • Metrology and profilometry
  • Holographic lithography
  • Digital holography for inspection of scattering media
  • Wavefront shaping and manipulation
  • Polarization holography
  • Gated digital holography (time and coherence gating)
  • Digital holography in LIDAR and related remote sensing techniques
  • Incoherent holography
  • Terahertz generation/modulation and its application to digital holography
  • Biomedical/clinical/medical applications
  • Environmental sensing
  • Dynamic holography and novel recording materials
  • Digital holography in nonlinear optical systems
  • Emerging applications of digital holography
  • 2D & 3D holographic display
  • Holographic optical elements and their novel applications
  • Augmented reality and head up display combiners and image projection
  • Metasurfaces and metalens for/in holography

All submissions need to present original, previously unpublished work and will be subject to the normal standards and peer review processes of the journal. The standard Applied Optics and JOSA A Article Publication Charges will apply to all published articles. To be eligible for publication, an expanded conference paper needs to add value to the original conference proceedings and the conference paper number must be included in the cover letter at submission. Please see Optica Publishing Group's guidelines on expanded conference papers for details.

Authors may choose between Applied Optics and JOSA A when submitting to the joint feature issue, but should recognize the differences between them and select the appropriate journal. The guest editors may recommend transferring a manuscript to the other journal as needed. Papers will appear in their respective journals. Additionally, a combined table of contents of papers from both journals will appear once all papers are published.

Please prepare manuscripts according to the author instructions for submission to Applied Optics or JOSA A and submit through the Prism submission system, specifying from the drop-down menu that the manuscript is for the feature issue on Digital Holography and 3-D Imaging.
