Space-based tests of fundamental physics have a long history, from early tests of general relativity to more recent missions such as gravity probe B and proposed missions to test the equivalence principle (STE-QUEST) and gravitational decoherence (MAQRO). These more recent proposals make extensive use of quantum technologies, from atomic clocks to weak force sensors. Deploying any technology into space pushes specifications to the limit and this will be especially true for quantum-enabled technologies. Recent advances in space technology as developed for experiments such as LISA and LISA Pathfinder have allowed researchers to optimally harness the space environment for quantum experiments.
This thematic series is dedicated to all aspects of space-based quantum technologies from fundamental physics to quantum communication protocols including proposals for new space-based quantum experiments as well as terrestrial experimental tests of new quantum technologies for space deployment
Thematic Series submissions are eligible for a waiver. Please request this during submission and state the reason for the request as "submitting to a Thematic Series”.
Submission Instructions: Before submission, authors should carefully read over the Instructions for Authors, which are located at http://epjquantumtechnology.springeropen.com/submission-guidelines. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the SpringerOpen submission system at https://www.editorialmanager.com/epjq/default.aspx according to the submission schedule. They should choose the correct Thematic Series in the “sections” box upon submitting. In addition, they should specify the manuscript as a submission to the “Thematic Series on Space Applications of Quantum Technology” in the cover letter. All submissions will undergo initial screening by the Guest Editors for fit to the theme of the Thematic Series and prospects for successfully negotiating the review process.
Manuscripts due: 31 January 2017.
