First, our paper on photo-mechanical optical devices (which we call PODs), just appeared in Optics Communications this month, which you can view by clicking here. I have talked about this work at several conferences, and I am getting very positive feedback. I am hoping to get this work funded in the near future. I believe that breakthroughs in this area could lead to amazing new technologies that will excite even the most jaded techies.
Secondly, the paper that got the nasty review, which I described in my post The Good, the Bad, and the Nasty, just got accepted. The letter from the editor is appended to this post.
A recent paper that we submitted to Advanced Materials, a high-impact journal, just appeared in print. This is a comment that my former student and colleague Javier Perez-Morena and I wrote on the work of some of our colleagues from Australia. We showed that their results were even more important than they originally thought - a happy outcome for all!
I learned about all three good news items this morning.
Finally, our paper on imaging studies of self-healing will appear shortly in the Journal of the Optical Society of America B. In addition, we have several papers that are in various stages of preparation and under review. New trials and tribulations surely await us!
***Update*** After all of this good news, I was pleased to learn of a fifth item of good news. In a previous post, I had talked about our newest Monte Carlo work, which we submitted to JOSA B. I just heard from Shoresh that this paper was accepted for publication with optional minor revisions. For once, the reviewers and I agree!
