Recently Giorgio Volpe, a PhD student in ICFO (Barcelona – Spain), one of my best friend told me he is involved in this interesting project. Here is how they describe this initiative:
“Optics & Photonics Focus (OPFocus) is an independent journal reviewing important recent developments in the fields of optics and photonics. OPFocus’ goal is to feature cutting edge research and to make it accessible to a wide range of readers, while preserving the accuracy of the information delivered. For this reason, all OPFocus’ stories are written by scientists actively working in the field. In this way, OPFocus provides an interesting review for fellow scientists and fascinating insights for laymen and journalists. ”

In my opinion it is a promising project, I appreciate a lot the effort of communicating research results also to people not directly involved with it. This is one of the reason why I like magazines such as the American scientists that is written by experts but for a wide range of audience; but also research blogs like Theory of Computing Blog.

Moreover as Einsten said once: “You haven’t really understood something if you are not able to explain it to your granny.”

I am actually planning to write an article for OPFocus, I’ve started to look for an interdisciplinary paper which faces resource allocation problems in the optics and photonics field…any suggestion is welcomed!
