Elsevier launches new open access journal: Photoacoustics

Munich, November 13, 2013 - Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of the new open access journal Photoacoustics.

The aim of Photoacoustics is to publish original research and review contributions within the fast growing scientific field of photoacoustics (optoacoustics) and thermoacoustics. Research in this area exploits optically and electromagnetically excited acoustical and thermal phenomena for visualization and characterization of a variety of materials and biological tissues, including living organisms.

Research directions employing photoacoustics are revolutionizing the ways that optical sensing and imaging are applied. Imaging based on photoacoustic techniques is considered the fastest growing bio-imaging modality. Likewise, photoacoustic sensing of tissues and cells, environmental and industrial measurements, spectroscopic detection and applications in nanotechnology and nanomedicine experience an unprecedented growth. In parallel, novel technologies including novel light sources, advanced ultrasonic detectors, novel contrast generation approaches and data processing and inversion methods are advancing to enable more accurate and quantitative use of photoacoustic techniques. Overall, photoacoustic techniques are expected to shape the future of optical methods and bring significant new performance in sensing and imaging sciences.

Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Photoacoustics, Professor Vasilis Ntziachristos, from the Technische Universitt Mnchen and the Helmholtz Zentrum Mnchen, together with Section Editors Professor Daniel Razansky, Professor Stanislav Emelianov and Professor Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, and a highly accredited international Editorial Board, aim for the journal to not only contribute as a medium to report on exciting progress in the field, but also as means to develop a society of scientists with interests in the development and application of the technology.

"Photoacoustics is an exciting and fast growing field of research that needs dedicated representation to support growth and encourage impact on different applications," said Professor Vasilis Ntziachristos. "This is a time of change for the optical method. And it is time for a journal that captures all the exciting developments in this highly promising field."
