Aims and Scope

The Biophotonics section of the journal Current Chinese Science publishes original research articles, letters, case reports, reviews/mini-reviews and guest edited thematic issues on various topics related to biophotonics. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China.


This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following biophotonics areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:


  • • Biophotonic applications
  • • Biophotonic sensors
  • • Biophotonics in clinical diagnostics and therapies (cancer and other diseases)
  • • Fluorescent markers and diagnostics
  • • Optical imaging and photoactivation for biomedical applications
