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 will cover 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.
