THE first issue of the bimonthly journal Applied Optics, a new publication of the Optical Society of America, appeared according to plan in January with a series of featured articles on optical pumping and masers, in addition to other papers, book reviews, and special columns devoted to a variety of applied aspects of optics. Each succeeding issue is also to feature a group of papers on a single area of applied optics. During 1962, the subjects to be covered will be space optics, foreign optics, optical engineering, infrared, and information theory; in 1963, the featured subjects will include astronomy, instrumentation, interferometry, spectroscopy, lens design, and computers.
