Fast Facts about Submitting a Paper

CLEO: QELS-Fundamental Science is a descendent of the Quantum Electronics and Laser Science Conference (QELS), which has been traditionally collocated with CLEO. QELS has long been a leading venue for presenting the newest research results in physics-related areas of optics, modern spectroscopy, atomic and molecular manipulation and control, quantum optics, optical materials, interactions of electromagnetic radiation with matter, ultrafast phenomena, and nonlinear optics. More recent additions include fields such as quantum information science, nanophotonics, and metamaterials.

CLEO: Science & Innovations is the "classic" CLEO which for over 36 years has reported applied research results on all types of lasers, optical materials, and photonic devices. Topics include laser processing of materials, terahertz technologies, high-field and ultrafast optics, optical communications, biophotonics, optical sensing and metrology, micro- and nano-photonics and nonlinear optics.

CLEO: Applications & Technology presents the transition of fundamental and applied research innovations towards products, including development and demonstration of new components, systems and applications of lasers and electro-optics technology. Emphasis is on pre-commercial or non-commercial technology validations in relevant environments, including demonstrations of component or breadboard systems in the laboratory, prototype demonstrations in operational environments, field test results, and engineering and manufacturing advances (for example, space qualification of lasers and components).
