Journal of Lightwave Technology
The Journal of lightwave technology is published semimonthly. It is comprised of original contributions covering work in all aspects of optical guidedwave science, technology, and engineering. Manuscripts are solicited that report original theoretical and/or experimental results that advance the technological base of guided-wave technology. Tutorial and review papers are by invitation only. Topics of interest include the following: fiber and cable technologies, active and passive guided-wave
... ponentry (light sources, detectors, repeaters, switches, fiber sensors, etc.), integrated optics/optoelectronics, systems/ subsystems, networks, switching, new applications, and unique field trials. System-oriented manuscripts should be concerned with systems that perform a function not previously available, out-perform previously established systems, or represent enhancements in the state of the art in general. "Information for IEEE Transactions and Journals Authors" is available on request from IEEE Publishing Services, 445 Hoes Lane, Piscataway, NJ 08854-4141. Submission instructions: Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jlt-ieee. Manuscripts may be submitted in .pdf or Word format for review purposes; however, after a paper is accepted, the files must be formatted according to IEEE production requirements (text and art saved separately in approved applications). Please try to follow the accepted style of the Journal as much as possible. English Language Editing Services: English language editing services can help refine the language of your article and reduce the risk of rejection without review. IEEE authors are eligible for discounts at several language editing services; visit the IEEE Author Center to learn more. Please note these services are fee-based and do not guarantee acceptance.
