Optica highlights scientific research from Ukraine

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA – We at Optica are deeply concerned for our members’ safety, health, well-being, and their families in Ukraine. Optica staff and volunteers are connecting with members in Ukraine to help. We stand with those who seek knowledge, those who forge solutions, and those who strive for peace.

From 183 countries around the world, Optica members and colleagues collaborate to make advancements in the optical sciences to better society. They live the Optica values of innovation and impact. Hundreds of thousands of researchers choose Optica Publishing Group journals and Optica conferences to share and discuss their work. Together, we collaborate to make the optical sciences and engineering, as well as the process of publishing research in optics, both accessible and equitable for the whole community.

Here are some of the recent works shared with the world through Optica Publishing Group’s journals by our colleagues in Ukraine—some already openly available and others that we are providing complimentary access to for the next 60 days. These scientists, researchers and scholars have contributed much to our shared knowledge base in optics and photonics—from lenses to lasers to holograms and more. We are grateful for the work they have contributed and look forward to their continued contributions
