Melville, NY, September 16, 2015 – AIP Publishing Announces Benjamin Eggleton as Editor–in–Chief of APL Photonics.

AIP Publishing, one of the world’s leading publishers in the physical sciences, today announced the appointment of Dr. Benjamin Eggleton as Editor-in-Chief of APL Photonics, its new open access, peer-reviewed journal reporting the latest advances in photonics research.

Dr. Eggleton is Professor of Optical Physics in the School of Physics at the University of Sydney and founding Director of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre for Ultrahigh Bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS). His pioneering work includes breakthroughs in the nonlinear optics of periodic media, ultrafast planar waveguide nonlinear optics, photonic crystal fibers, optofluidics, and fiber grating-based signal conditioning. Dr. Eggleton’s work links fundamental research to applied science spanning physics and engineering.

“It is with great pride that I take on the position of Editor–in–Chief of APL Photonics,” commented Dr. Eggleton. “Photonics is the linchpin of a multi-trillion dollar global industry, acting as the catalyst for multidisciplinary breakthroughs that are being translated into real world devices and playing a vital role in all aspects of our daily lives. APL Photonics is being launched at an exciting time for the community and will enable the communication of the most valuable and timely discoveries in all aspects of photonics research.”

“Under Dr. Eggleton’s leadership, APL Photonics will establish itself as the authoritative, peer-reviewed, rapid publication serving the entire photonics community,” stated John Haynes, Chief Executive Officer of AIP Publishing. “Building on the strengths of Applied Physics Letters, one of the most respected and highly cited publications in applied physics, APL Photonics will serve as the dedicated open access home for high quality photonics research.”

APL Photonics will be open for manuscript submission in October 2015 and the first articles will be published in Spring 2016.
