Material advancement and understanding is foundational to the understanding and advancement of technologies, including quantum technology. While current quantum technology is based on well-developed materials such as “conventional” superconductors, the past several decades have witnessed the emergence of many new classes of “quantum materials” featuring more exotic quantum properties. They bring intriguing promises for better performing quantum technological applications. This Special Topic, organized by Yong Chen and Philippe Bouyer, will review theoretical and experimental progresses made to study quantum materials such as topological quantum materials, 2D systems, correlated materials, and more. It will address questions such as how to utilize and harness their properties, how to better understand and characterize them or how they combine with “conventional” materials for new quantum technology concepts.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- 2D materials
- Low dimensional materials
- Hybrid quantum materials
- Quantum sensors and qubits
- Quantum transport and devices
- Topological quantum materials and phases
- Quantum phase transitions
- Correlated quantum materials

AQS is focusing primarily on invited Reviews, and Perspectives. Reviews can be Focused Reviews that are short, timely review that covers recent advances in established fields or an emerging area of quantum science and are approximately 10 – 20 pages in length or can be Standard Reviews that are comprehensive, providing more in-depth coverage in established areas of quantum science, that are approximately, 20-50 pages in length. Perspectives provide an balanced and objective overview of recent advances and the author’s unique view on where the field is headed and are typically around 10 pages in length.
If you are interested in contributing a Review or Perspective please complete the relevant Editorial Summary Intake Form, shown here, and email it to the Editorial team (AVSQuantumScience@aip.org) prior to your submission for pre-screening by the editors. Once you receive a response, you can prepare your manuscript using the information For Authors, at https://avs.scitation.org/aqs/authors/manuscript. You can then submit your paper using the AQS online submission system at https://aqs.peerx-press.org/. As a journal in its early-years, our editors will rely on the Editorial Summary Intake Form to establish working relationships with authors as well as ensure papers are within desired scope, quality, and diversity we aim to achieve. For additional questions, please email the team at AVSQuantumScience@aip.org.
