"Journal of Lasers, Optics & Photonics is among the lasers & photonics journal which publish quality articles after the peer review process and acceptance from the editor of the article. The journal publishes Research/Review/ short commentaries/minireviews related to its research field.
The biomedical applications of plasmonic nanoparticles (NPs) use their optical scattering properties for imaging and diagnostics and their photothermal properties for various types of therapies through the generation of heat, vapor bubbles and acoustic waves. The specificity and sensitivity of imaging and diagnostics as well as the selectivity and efficacy of the therapeutic methods depend upon the selectivity of NP delivery and activation within their targets, typically diseased cells or tissues. The initial application of various NPs was based on passive targeting, which did not allow the NPs to recognize their specific molecular targets and resulted in the low selectivity of NP-based methods and also in potentially toxic loads of NPs. The situation was improved by using active molecular targeting with cell-specific molecules (peptides, antibodies, aptamers) attached to NPs and coupling to cognate receptors at the membranes of specific target (diseased) cells.

OMICS Group has more than 700+ peer-reviewed journals which are publishing quality articles and conduct around 3000+ International Scientific Conferences worldwide. Although OMICS Group is an open access publisher, it provides subscription based journals called Scitechnol journals. All the journals have strong support from Editorial Board to ensure quick and quality review process. OMICS Group Conferences provide the podium for exchange of information and global networking as many of the renowned scientists become a part of the conferences.
