Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
Optics and Photonics is a section of Frontiers in Physics devoted to the science and application of photonics and optics, ranging from optical characterization of materials to innovative photonic device functionalities enabled by new physical concept and novel optical materials. The section welcomes submissions covering but not limited to:
More generally, submissions should cover all the various fields where photonics is playing a role, such as lightening, energy, security, sensing, environment, defense, communication, computing, medicine, and manufacturing.

Optics and Photonics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Optics and Photonics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Optics and Photonics will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Physics.
