Equations should be entered using MS Equation Editor.
Papers with handwritten equations are not accepted.
Notations should be defined when first appearing in the text.
Tables should be submitted on separate pages in the format
of appropriate text processors (see above), or in the text
format (with columns separated by periods, commas,

italics), publishers, city and year of publishing. (If
reference is made to a particular chapter, indicate chapter
title, book title in italics, and page numbers). Example: J. A.
Hall, Imaging tubes, Chap. 14 in The Infrared Handbook,
Eds. W. W. Wolfe, G. J. Zissis, pp. 132–176, ERIM, Ann
Arbor, MI (1978).
Journals: Author(s) (initials, then last names), paper title,
journal name in italics (use abbreviated names only for
well-known journals), volume and issue numbers, page
numbers, year of publishing. Example: N. Blutzer and A. S.
Jensen, Current readout of infrared detectors. Opt. Eng.
26 (3), pp. 241–248 (1987).
Captions for figures and tables should be printed in the
manuscript double-spaced after the list of references.
Footnotes should be avoided if possible.
Pictures will be scanned for digital reproduction. Only highquality

paper title, author(s) name(s) and figure number, and mark
the top side with an arrow.
Photographs should be submited as original prints.
At the moment publication of
original papers, reviews or short notes in Semiconductor Physics,
Quantum Electronics and Optoelectronics is free. There are no any
submission charges. And there are no any processing charges for standard publication due to Waiver Policy for Developing Nations currently applied to authors from any country.
Color printing is possible if its cost is covered by the
authors or their sponsors. For information about the rules
