What we publish
PHOTONICS MEDIA PRESS serves an audience of scientists, engineers, marketers and others in the global photonics industry and its growing application areas. We are interested in books that will help our readers do their jobs better, as well as books for a broader audience that will advance the understanding of photonics technologies in our daily lives.

We seek proposals for applications-oriented technical books on new and emerging photonic technologies. Manuscripts should be about 200 to 400 pages long and include photos, drawings and illustrations as required to support the topic.

For our ACCENT ON APPLICATIONS series, we are looking for short – 100 page – manuscripts focused on how to successfully integrate a technology into a process or system. These books should answer important questions that often start with "How do I ..." or, "What is the best way to ..." and offer guidelines and best practices for implementing a change to the way something is done in a lab, on a production floor or in other environments where photonic technologies can be used.

We also will consider proposals for:
  • Manuscripts that address the business and industry side of optics and photonics technologies, challenges and applications including safety, training, technology transfer, innovation
  • Books that offer fresh perspectives on the growing impact of light-based technologies on our daily lives that might appeal to a broader audience
  • Textbooks, workbooks and other resources for all ages that introduce and build an understanding of light-based technologies and their applications
