Welcome to another issue of AOS News. We have a great range of articles, with details of some of the International Year of Light events that have taken place in the past few months as well as articles on subwavelength topological photonics, superchiral light and smartphone spectroscopy. Other items in this issue include an article about AOS Foundation Member and Past President, Parameswaran ‘Hari’ Harihahan, who passed away in late July and our ‘Optics in Everyday Life’ section, which looks at Australia’s participation in the development of optical fibres. I hope you enjoy reading them all. As usual, please let me know if you have any suggestions for anything you would like to see in AOS News or have any articles or other items you would like to submit.
