  This is an international journal aimed at providing a broad exchange of ideas and research results obtained in academic and industrial research organizations throughout the world. The journal covers a wide range of issues in information optics such as optical memory, mechanisms for optical data recording and processing, photosensitive materials, optical and optoelectronic components, and many other related topics. Also included are memory systems using biological structures and concepts of brain operation.
