WASHINGTON, Feb. 6-
The Optical Society (OSA) has kicked off its 50th
anniversary celebration of Applied Optics, one of
its flagship peer-reviewed publications. Applied
Optics, which printed its first issue in 1962,
publishes research on applications in optics and
photonics, with a focus on the real-world impact
of scientific innovations.

“Applied Optics is a unique journal for the optics
community because it publishes content that
describes how one moves the potential of science
into a practical realm, as opposed to the science
behind the concept. In short, the journal strives
to emphasize impact over innovation,” said Joseph
Mait, editor-in-chief of Applied Optics. “Today,
as we celebrate the journal’s past, we also look
forward to the many goals we’ve laid out for the
future of this journal. With all that the field
has  to offer, I am excited about what we have
planned for Applied Optics in the short term as
well as for the next 50 years and beyond.”
