Aim & Scope:
Waves in Random and Complex Media (formerly Waves in Random Media ) is a broad, interdisciplinary journal that reports theoretical, applied and experimental research related to any wave phenomena.
The field of wave phenomena is all-pervading, fast-moving and exciting; more and more, researchers are looking for a journal which addresses the understanding of wave-matter interactions in increasingly complex natural and engineered media. With its foundations in the scattering and propagation community, Waves in Random and Complex Media is becoming a key forum for research in both established fields such as imaging through turbulence, as well as emerging fields such as metamaterials.
The Journal is of interest to scientists and engineers working in the field of wave propagation, scattering and imaging in random or complex media. Papers on theoretical developments, experimental results and analytical/numerical studies are considered for publication, as are deterministic problems when also linked to random or complex media. Papers are expected to report original work, and must be comprehensible and of general interest to the broad community working with wave phenomena.
The Journal welcomes studies of waves in random and/or complex media, such as tissue or metamaterials, nonlinear, chaotic or fractal media, as well as relevant inverse problems (the physical problem’s significance within one or more of the areas of wave propagation, scattering and imaging in random or complex media should be articulated). Examples of topics covered are:
Propagation and diffraction of classical waves Quantum and nonlinear effects in complex media Scattering and inverse scattering, backscattering enhancement, multiple scattering, rough surface and volume scattering Surface waves and surface excitation, including plasmonics Statistical properties of waves Electromagnetics of metamaterials and photonic bandgap structures
Examples of specific applications include optical properties of photonic crystals, applications of microwaves to remote sensing (e.g. FOPEN) and medical imaging.
All published research articles in Waves in Random and Complex Media have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymized refereeing by expert referees.
All peer review is single blind, and submission is online via ScholarOne Manuscripts.
