ACS Photonics Celebrates the International Day of Light

The International Day of Light is a global initiative that provides an annual focal point for the continued appreciation of light and the role it plays in science, culture and art, education, and sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy.

In celebration of the International Day of Light, ACS Photonics is pleased to share and highlight a collection of key papers published in the journal over the last year that celebrate leading-edge photonics research.
