This LaTeX template can be used to prepare a supplementary document for inclusion with submission to Optica Publishing Group's journals.
This document, which may include supplementary information such as expanded descriptions of materials and methods, will be published as a PDF linked to the primary article. The supplemental file should only present information that would be useful and worthwhile for the reader, for example, details that would be necessary to reproduce an experiment. The article, however, must be coherent without the supplemental PDF file. Please see the Author Guidelines for Supplementary Materials for more information.
Supplementary documents are not copyedited and so should be prepared carefully with the template provided. Note that a coversheet with final article title, author block, publication date, journal branding, and other details will be added to your supplemental document during production. Do not include such details directly in this document..
Note that this template can be run from your own TeX system or within the cloud-based Overleaf system.
