Professor Hayden acts as a Topical Editor for Optics Letters in the areas of nonlinear optics, THz generation, and organic and molecular electronics.


Optics Letters offers rapid dissemination of new results in all areas of optics with short, original, peer-reviewed communications. Optics Letters covers the latest research in optical science, including optical measurements, optical components and devices, atmospheric optics, biomedical optics, Fourier optics, integrated optics, optical processing, optoelectronics, lasers, nonlinear optics, optical storage and holography, optical coherence, polarization, quantum electronics, ultrafast optical phenomena, photonic crystals, and fiber optics. Criteria used in determining acceptability of contributions include newsworthiness to a substantial part of the optics community and the effect of rapid publication on the research of others. This journal, published twice each month, is where readers look for the latest discoveries in optics. The articles often describe research-in-progress, thus reflecting the leading edge in the "science of light." With an Impact Factor of 3.385, Optics Letters is among the top-ranked journals in the Optics category.
