Laser Physics is an international journal published in cooperation with institutes involved in laser research. The renowned Russian laser physicist and Nobel Prize winner, Academician Alexander M. Prokhorov, was the first Editor-in-Chief of the journal from its foundation in 1990 up to 2002. The journal offers a comprehensive view of theoretical and experimental laser research and applications by top authors. Articles cover every aspect of modern laser physics and quantum electronics, emphasizing physical effects in various media (solid, gaseous, liquid) leading to the generation of laser radiation; peculiarities of propagation of laser radiation; problems involving impact of laser radiation on various substances and the emerging physical effects, including coherent ones; the applied use of lasers and laser spectroscopy; the processing and storage of information; etc. (See the list of topics) An important part of the journal is devoted to reviews, supplemented by biographical briefs of authors. In addition to original papers and reviews, the journal contains proceedings of international conferences, symposia and seminars. This journal is a valuable resource for scholars and scientists, laboratories and libraries. The rapid publication, distribution, and delivery of Laser Physics assure recipients timely delivery of current news and research.

Laser Physics is abstracted or/and indexed in Current Contents, SciSearch, Research Alert, and INSPEC.
