Latest review

First review round: 3.4 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

This was my first experience with Optics Letters and I have nothing but good things to say. The peer review had quick turnaround, the reviewer's comments and questions were critical yet entirely fair and through answering them our letter turned out much better than it was at time of submission. Plus, OSA doesn't charge unless you'd like your figures in color print (or would like to give a donation), which is refreshing. For these reasons, I look forward to submitting work to OL again in the future.
