"Using wavefronts: detection and processing" Topical issue

The Journal of European Optical Society (JEOS -RPis pleased to announce a new Topical Issue entitled "Using wavefronts: detection and processing".

We devote this topical issue to the studies covering a broad field of high-quality wavefront sensing applications, including wavefront local curvatures measurements and analyses of amplitude and phase of unknown optical fields, not only in the visible band of the electromagnetic spectrum but also the whole continuum spectrum. Studies based on interferometric or non-interferometric techniques and whole-field or point methods are welcome. We open this issue to all possible applications of wavefront detection and processing techniques, as the community would benefit from learning different updated ways to set up experiments, processing the detected signals, recovering the phase in its corresponding EM band, and displaying the measurement results. We invite scientists from diverse backgrounds, from astronomy to ophthalmology, mechanics and thermics, to cite just a few, to contribute to this topical issue.

Topics of interest include, point and full-field techniques related with:

  • Interferometric measurements
  • Testing freeform surfaces (interferometry, CGH, Hartmann test, …)
  • Adaptive optics wavefront sensing,
  • Terahertz wavefront sensing,
  • Phase recovery
  • Fringe analysis
  • Phase unwrapping

This topical issue is not limited to these topics and can be extended to related ones such as wavefront sensors, wavefront shaping/correcting actuators, for instance.

Submitted manuscripts will undergo a rigorous peer-review process, ensuring the highest standards of scientific quality and integrity expected from the journal JEOS-RP. Papers adding a significant value to the field will be published in this topical issue, providing an opportunity for your research to gain visibility and make a significant impact in the field.

Submission deadline for this topical issue is September 30, 2024Papers can be submitted immediately or at any time up to this date. Submitted articles will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and published online as they are accepted and added to this topical issue. The mean time to “first on-line” with DOI is lower than 70 days.
