Optics & Photonics Focus

In 2008, while Giovanni Volpe was at ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences, together with Armand Niederberger and Giorgio Volpe, he initiated Optics & Photonics Focus, an independent magazine, which reviews important recent developments in the fields of optics and photonics, and of which he has been Editor ever since. The project is run by an international group of scientists and is now sponsored by the Optical Society of America and the European Physical Society.

Giovanni Volpe has also contributed popular-scientific articles to Contemporary Physics, Europhysics News, OSA Focal Point, and Global Talent News.
