Congratulations to Deputy Editor Christian Brosseau!

Christian Brosseau is the recipient the 2017 SPIE G.G. Stokes Award “in recognition of his contributions to the theory of polarization of light, particularly for work on statistical optics and polarization applications in optical information processing.” Christian will receive the award during SPIE Optics and Photonics Conference (August 6-10, 2017, San Diego, CA).

Journal of Applied Physics Eliminates Page Charges

As part of AIP Publishing's ongoing efforts to improve our author experience, we recently evaluated page and color charges and we believe it's time to eliminate them completely from the Journal of Applied Physics and Applied Physics Letters. AIP Publishing continually reviews and updates policies to make sure we're actively supporting physics researchers, and we're pleased to make this change to help our authors publish their best research in our top-tier journals.

 “With this announcement, AIP Publishing continues to demonstrate its commitment to the researchers and communities it serves” says Dr. Jason Wilde, Chief Publishing Officer, “while most of our page-charges were voluntary we have taken this step to ensure that authors, anywhere, are able to publish their research without barriers either through our thriving Open Access program or in our leading subscription journals.”

For more information about this change, please see our press release.
