Call for Papers: Special Issue on Quantum Industry

This article collection on “Quantum Industry” is perhaps the first of this kind and aims at bringing together all the main players involved in the process of transferring quantum technologies into a mature quantum industry. The goal is to foster the dialogue among all parties, to discuss potential common issues at an early stage, to remove possible pitfalls and speed up the process overall. It is intended to be a little stepping stone on the path to a successful quantum economy.

Call for papers: Special Issue on Quantum Metrology & Quantum Enhanced Measurement

The exploitation of quantum effects in customised systems can lead to devices with superior performance and capabilities for sensing, measuring and imaging. We welcome submissions to a special issue that aims to present cutting-edge research in the context of all these R&D quantum technology domains, as well as to highlight activities aiming to develop the necessary standardisation and metrological infrastructure for the characterisation and certification of the new quantum-based devices.

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.


EPJ Quantum Technology is co-published by:
