IEEE Photonics Technology Letters

Rapid publication of significant original research contributions in photonics, lightwave components, laser physics and laser/electro-optic technology.

untitled

IEEE Photonics Technology Letters addresses all aspects of the IEEE Photonics Society Constitutional Field of Interest with emphasis on photonic/lightwave components and applications, laser physics and systems and laser/electro-optics technology. The letters journal publishes engineering, applied physics and physics-oriented papers providing a focal point of quality engineering-oriented papers in the electro-optics field not found in other rapid-publication journals.

Information for Authors

IEEE Photonics Technology Letters is a hybrid journal allowing open access and traditional submission. It is published by the IEEE Photonics Society.  IEEE Photonics Technology Letters is published semimonthly. Original contributions are welcomed which relate advances or state-of-the-art capabilities in the theory, design, fabrication, application, performance, packaging and reliability of:

  • Lasers and optical devices; including semiconductor and solid state lasers, detectors, integrated optics and optoelectronics, sensors, etc.
  • Fiber, cable and waveguide technologies; including materials, splicing, connectors, measurement techniques, etc.
  • Systems, subsystems, and new applications of quantum electronic devices; including system demonstrations, signal processing, performance characterization, etc.

The use of artificial intelligence (AI)–generated text in an article shall be disclosed in the acknowledgments section of any paper submitted to an IEEE Conference or Periodical. The sections of the paper that use AI-generated text shall have a citation to the AI system used to generate the text.

The articles in this journal are peer reviewed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board Operations Manual (https://pspb.ieee.org/images/files/files/opsmanual.pdf). Each published article was reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers using a single-blind peer review process, where the identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors, but the reviewers know the identities of the authors. Articles will be screened for plagiarism before acceptance.

The journal offers the thorough review process that is a signature of IEEE Publications. Upon acceptance papers receive a Digital Object Identifier and are published in the Early Access section on IEEE Xplore. At this stage papers are fully citable. The final published version of the papers is copy-edited by IEEE to ensure higher production quality.

All IEEE journals require an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) for all authors. ORCID is a persistent unique identifier for researchers and functions similarly to an article’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI). ORCIDs enable accurate attribution and improved discoverability of an author’s published work. The author will need a registered ORCID in order to submit a manuscript or review a proof in an IEEE journal. Researchers can sign up for an ORCID for free via an easy registration process on orcid.org

Learn more at http://orcid.org/content/about-orcid or in a video at https://vimeo.com/97150912.

Authors who do not have an ORCID in their ScholarOne user account will be prompted to provide one during submission.

English language editing services can help refine the language of your article and reduce the risk of rejection without review. IEEE authors are eligible for discounts at several language editing services; visit the IEEE Author Center to learn more. Please note these services are fee-based and do not guarantee acceptance.

Please note that submissions that are hard to understand due to poor English will be immediately rejected.

All PTL manuscripts have to be original and to be the author’s own body of work. Please check the following links for more information: IEEE Plagiarism Guidelines

All members of the IEEE are eligible for membership in the Society and may receive a print subscription to the PTL journal upon payment of the annual Society membership fee of $34.00, plus an annual subscription fee of $75.00. Electronic access to PTL on IEEE Explore is included with Society membership. Member copies of Transactions/Journals are for personal use only.

This publication is a hybrid journal, allowing either Traditional manuscript submission or Open Access (author-pays OA) manuscript submission.

The OA option, if selected, enables unrestricted public access to the article via IEEE Xplore. The OA option will be offered to the author post-acceptance during final file submission. The traditional option, if selected, enables access to all qualified subscribers and purchasers via IEEE Xplore. No OA payment is required.

Fees:
For hybrid journals, the OA article processing fee is $2,495 USD plus other applicable fees (e.g., over-length paper charges and color page charges).

Discounts:
IEEE will apply a discount to current IEEE members. IEEE Members will receive a 5% discount, and members of IEEE Societies will receive a 20% discount. Discounts cannot be combined or applied to any other fees such as over-length article or color page charges.

IEEE Photonics Technology Letters Awards

Annually, we recognize significant contributions to IEEE Photonics Technology Letters with the following awards:

IEEE Photonics Technology Letters Outstanding Reviewer Award
Nominated by the Associate Editors, the selection committee chooses reviewers to receive the PTL Outstanding Reviewer Award. The award is based on three criteria: quality of comments, timeliness of reviews, and the number of reviews completed. 
IEEE Photonics Technology Letters Best Paper Award
This is awarded to the paper considered the best among the papers published in the IEEE Photonics Technology Letters during the previous three calendar years. Reviewed by the PTL selection committee, the best paper is selected annually based on four criteria: originality, technical content, impact, and presentation.
