Call for Papers: Prospects for Space Quantum Research

Every day, quantum technologies gain significance. Space exploration, at the forefront of quantum development, serves as a major driver and accelerator. This collection summarizes quantum technology uses and advancements, focusing on NASA and ESA's strategic considerations per the National Academies' Decadal Survey reports. Check out the full scope of the collection.

Call for Papers: Quantum Education

This topical collection focuses on novel approaches to address the educational challenges around quantum technologies and their ever-increasing applications. Authors are invited to contribute original research discussing new topics relevant for the teaching of modern quantum physics, novel teaching methods and ideas, the effectiveness of communicating quantum technologies to broader audiences and so on. Check out the full scope of the collection.

Call for Papers: Special Issue on Quantum Standardization

Many national governments around the world are investing significantly in the potential for economic growth and increased opportunity based on new systems, products and services using the quantum properties of materials. These properties are best described by the equations of quantum physics and the resulting devices and systems are collectively known as quantum technologies.

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.

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.
