Beginning in mid-February 2008, the 1997-2007 online version of the Science Watch® newsletter, ESI-Topics.com, and in-cites.com, will all be featured together on the redesigned ScienceWatch.com. All previous content from the three sites will be permanently archived, and remain accessible from any existing bookmarks to the archived pages. No new content will be added to this site. Updates and new content (updated biweekly) are available at ScienceWatch.com now.

Overview

The top 25 papers in optoelectronics covers the entire spectrum of phenomena and devices. Most prominent, and heading the list, are femtosecond lasers and research into ultrashort pulses as short as a single femtosecond. A femtosecond is to a second as a second is to 32 million years. Another leading theme is the theory, application and implementation of fractional Fourier transforms in optics. A third research area that appears multiple times in the top 25 is the generation and control of solitons in long-distance transmission over optical fibers. A final recurring theme is the study of erbium-doped glasses for fiber amplifiers used in telecommunications, especially trans-oceanic lines.

The resulting database contained 67,159 papers PUBLISHED FROM 1991-1999. These papers were published in 46 journals; and represented the work of 74,656 authors from 10,974 institutions and 110 countries.

Rankings

With the database, ISI analysts generated lists of top 25 papers, authors, journals, institutions, and nations from this time span.

The top 25 papers are ranked according to total cites. Rankings for author, journal, institution, and country are listed in three ways: according to total papers, total cites, and total cites/paper.

Ranking by total cites was used as the basis for determining which authors, journals, institutions, and countries to feature in our editorial section.
