Call for papers: Special issue on Quantum Magnetometers

Quantum sensing of magnetic fields is one of the fast-moving areas of Quantum Technologies. We are now announcing a special issue on Quantum Magnetometers, devices that utilize a quantum system, coherence and/or entanglement to measure magnetic fields with advanced properties compared to classical devices. This issue is now open for submissions, with a deadline on 28 February 2019. More details here.

Featured article: Q3Sat: quantum communications uplink to a 3U CubeSat—feasibility & design

Satellites are the most efficient way to achieve global scale quantum communication (Q.Com) because unavoidable losses restrict fiber based Q.Com to a few hundred kilometers. S. P. Neumann, S. K. Joshi and team demonstrate the feasibility of establishing a Q.Com uplink with a 3U CubeSat using commercial off-the-shelf components, the majority of which have space heritage.

About EPJ

EPJ is a rapidly growing series of internationally reputed, peer-reviewed journals that are indexed in all major citation databases. The editorial boards of the EPJ are composed of leading specialists in their respective fields and have made it their mission to uphold the highest standards of scientific quality in the journals. EPJ started in the late 1990s as a merger and co-publication of Zeitschrift für Physik (Springer), Journal de Physique (EDP Sciences) and Il Nuovo Cimento (Società Italiana di Fisica) covering all aspects of the pure and applied physical sciences. Its spectrum has since expanded to encompass many interdisciplinary topics, including complexity and data sciences.

EPJ QT accepted in SCIE and Scopus

We are very pleased to announce that EPJ Quantum Technology is now indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) database, one of the major databases of the Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters) Web of Science, and has been accepted for indexing in Scopus.

We would like to thank everyone for supporting EPJ QT and contributing to this success.

Aims and scope

Driven by advances in technology and experimental capability, the last decade has seen the emergence of quantum technology: a new praxis for controlling the quantum world. It is now possible to engineer complex, multi-component systems that merge the once distinct fields of quantum optics and condensed matter physics.

EPJ Quantum Technology covers theoretical and experimental advances in subjects including but not limited to the following:

  • Quantum measurement, metrology and lithography
  • Quantum complex systems, networks and cellular automata
  • Quantum electromechanical systems
  • Quantum optomechanical systems
  • Quantum machines, engineering and nanorobotics
  • Quantum control theory
  • Quantum information, communication and computation
  • Quantum thermodynamics
  • Quantum metamaterials
  • The effect of Casimir forces on micro- and nano-electromechanical systems
  • Quantum biology
  • Quantum sensing
  • Hybrid quantum systems
  • Quantum simulations

The journal will NOT consider the following topics:

  • Foundations of quantum mechanics
  • Alternative approaches to, new structures for or different interpretations of QM (e.g. Bohmian Mechanics)
  • Non-technical applications such as "quantum consciousness", "quantum psychology" , "quantum economics" etc.
