CIOMP through my eyes

Light, Science & Applications

A joint initiative between CIOMP and the Nature Publishing Group led to the inauguration of the new optics journal: Light, Science & Applications (LSA) that was launched initially in electronic form in 2012 with a hard copy to follow in 2013. My support for the new journal has led me to become a Topical Editor covering the area of guided wave optics and photonics. This is a challenging role, as the goal for LSA is to be a top optics journal in international rankings within the next few years.

Summary

The establishment of CIOMP in 1952 provided a spearhead for Chinese optics and a figurehead for its future. It also provided cohesion in optics in a country that is physically very large and diverse in both its geography and demographics. CIOMP has become a forerunner in raising the status of Chinese optics in the international community and increasingly reflects the breadth and depth of Chinese optics. It was a pleasure to be invited to attend the Photonics Trend Conference and associated celebrations for the 60th anniversary of CIOMP in September 2012. I look forward to a long and continuing association with CIOMP, and to following with interest its future path and leadership in optics.
