PIER Journals are a family of journals supported by the PhotonIcs and Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS), which has become a major symposium in the area related to photonics and electromagnetics. The scope includes all aspects of electromagnetic theory plus its wide-ranging applications. Hence, it includes topics motivated by mathematics, sciences as well as topics inspired by advanced technologies. The spectrum ranges from very low frequencies to ultra-violet frequencies. The length scale spans from nanometer length scale to kilometer length scale. The physics covers the classical regime as well as the quantum regime.
Sample topics are fundamental issues associated with classical and quantum electromagnetics/optics. These could include research topics in photonics, plasmonics, metamaterials, new antenna designs, advanced microwaves, and computational electromagnetics. We welcome advanced applications related to electromagnetic interference/compatibility, scattering and inverse scattering, remote sensing and random media, novel radars, advanced imaging, materials, and all other modern developments. Cross-disciplinary research linking with math, science, and computational science such as machine learning are also welcomed.
All PIER journals publish peer-reviewed and original articles on all aspects of electromagnetic theories and technologies. PIER primarily publishes high quality and high impact articles on hot topics. PIER B publishes comprehensive and tutorial review articles. PIER C publishes papers on circuits, wireless communications, and other topics related electromagnetics technologies. PIER M publishes papers on methods and measurements of electromagnetics, and related topics. PIER Letters publishes succinct original articles on the frontiers of electromagnetics, and related math and science papers.
PIER has been first published as a monograph series on Electromagnetic Waves in 1989. PIER B, PIER C, PIER M and PIER Letters are online open accessed journals since 2008. All PIER journals are openly accessible (open access) via the Internet.
