|Publication history||1968–1987: Journal of Physics B: Atomic and Molecular Physics
1988–present: Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics
In 2006, this journal merged with Journal of Optics B (1999–2005).
The Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published biweekly by IOP Publishing. It was established in 1968 from the division of the earlier title, Physical Society (London) Proceedings. In 2006, the Journal of Optics B: Quantum and Semiclassical Optics was merged with the Journal of Physics B. The editor-in-chief is Paul Corkum (University of Ottawa-NRC, Canada).
The journal covers research on atomic and molecular physics, scattering, ionization, ultracold matter, quantum optics, quantum information, intense laser fields, and ultrashort pulses. Atomic, molecular, and optical physics provide insights not only into the behavior of atoms and molecules, but also contribute to the understanding of quantum theory, condensed matter, and the control and manipulation of light and matter at the smallest scales.
