About SpringerOpen

SpringerOpenSpringerOpen is Springer’s new suite of open access journals which will cover all disciplines. SpringerOpen journals are fully and immediately open access and will publish articles under the Creative Commons Attribution license. This makes it easy for authors to fully comply with open access mandates and retain copyright. SpringerOpen journals combine open access and our expertise in delivering high-quality and rapid publications, from online submission systems and in-depth peer review to an efficient, author-friendly production process.


Aims & scope


Optical Nanoscopy is devoted to the rapid dissemination of original works on principles, development, and applications of optical imaging with spatial resolution substantially better than half the wavelength of light. The journal will have an emphasis on far- field optical approaches with resolution at the nanometer scale, as well as on advancements of near-field optical microscopy.

Optical Nanoscopy will be interdisciplinary, encompassing all aspects of optical nanoscopy, including theory and novel concepts of subdiffraction resolution imaging, experimental demonstration of novel concepts, major developmental progress, the improvement of the chemistry of fluorophores and labels including fluorescent and switchable molecules, fluorescent proteins or Q-dots, and applications to any field in science, in particular, biology, medicine, and the material sciences. Example topics include the principles, developments, and applications of nanoscopy concepts known as STED, PALM, STORM, GSDIM, SSIM, RESOLFT, PAINT, SOFI, etc. as well as SNOM/NSOM and other emerging concepts.
