Featured research: Spatial non-adiabatic passage using geometric phases

Spatial non-adiabatic passage using geometric phases © Benseny et al. 2017

Benseny et al. introduce "a set of experimentally realistic, non-adiabatic protocols for spatial state preparation, which yield the same fidelity as their adiabatic counterparts, but on fast timescales."

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.

Call for papers

Submissions are invited to the following article collection:

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.
