UCI Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic Founding Director Michael Berns and Assistant Professor Daryl Preece were selected as associate editors on the editorial board of Optics and Photonics, led by Lorenzo Pavesi of University of Trento.  As associate editors, Berns and Preece will play a role in the strategic development of their specialty, while editing manuscripts.

The selection was in recognition of a special issue of three Frontiers journals about Optical Trapping (Laser Tweezers) and Nanosurgery (Laser Scissors), which was one of the top-performing collections in the specialty section Optics and Photonics in 2021.  The research topic attracted 59,807 views and 13,225 downloads.

Co-editors Halina Rubensztein-Dunlop from the University of Queensland in Australia and Monika Ritsch-Marte from the Medical University, Innsbruck in Austria were also selected as associate editors.

 “The success of our special issue is a testament to the high level of interest in the burgeoning field of optics and photonics, and particularly in the sub-specialty area of cellular biophotonics,” stated Berns.
