Semiconductor Physics, Quantum Electronics and Optoelectronics (SPQEO) is an open access peer-reviewed international scientific journal publishing fundamental and applied papers and short notes in the area of:

semiconductor physics;
hetero- and low-dimensional structures;
physics of microelectronic devices;
linear and nonlinear solid-state optics;
optoelectronics and optoelectronic devices;
quantum electronics;

SPQEO was founded in 1998. All articles are accepted and published in English. Issued quarterly, one volume per year.

Information valuable for post-graduates and doctorants (in Ukraine). SPQEO journal are adopted by the Highest Attestation Commission of Ukraine as an edition where results of candidate and doctor theses may be published and taken into account when conferring respective scientific degrees.



The articles are reviewed by two independent experts who are appointed by the editorial board (double blind reviewing process), more information at "Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement". After that the corresponding author receives a copy of an article manuscript with reviewers remarks. Reprint version revised by the author and agreed with reviewers is considered the final one and must be signed by the reviewers and authors. After that the text, figures and tables replacements or modifications are prohibited. When publishing an article the editorial board follows the last version delivery date.

Authors are welcome to suggest suitable independent reviewers when they submit their manuscripts, but these suggestions may not be followed by the journal. Authors may also request the journal to exclude not more than two individuals or laboratories. The journal sympathetically considers such exclusion requests and usually honors them, but the editor's decision on the choice of peer-reviewers is final.

Our journal editors treat the submitted manuscript and all communication with authors and referees as confidential. Authors must also treat communication with the journal as confidential: correspondence with the journal, reviewers' reports and other confidential material must not be posted on any website or otherwise publicized without prior permission from the editors, whether or not the submission is eventually published.


The papers are routinely scanned for plagiarism using free online plagiarism checker tools (, , )


Due to kindly assistance of EBSCOhost all the materials published in the journal Semiconductor Physics, Quantum Electronics and Optoelectronics starting from the Volume 6, #4, 2003 are presented in 32 research databases.
The journal is indexed and abstracted in the WorldCat, Vernadsky National Library, CrossRef (all articles have DOI, journal participates in Cited-by-Linking).
