Quantum photonics offers great advantages for the implementation of quantum communication, distributed quantum computing networks, and other information processing tasks. The quantum features of light are readily accessible and can be manipulated with great precision. For these reasons, many quantum technologies are expected to make use of optical information carriers. The question is how best to create, process, store, and detect quantum states of light. In this Special Topic, organized by Pieter Kok and Philippe Bouyer, AVS Quantum Science will identify and support review articles that present the current state of the art in quantum photonics, including quantum dots as photon sources, integrated photonic circuits, detector technology, and more.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Quantum dots
- Single-photon sources
- Light-matter interactions
- Photonic molecules
- Quantum emitters
- Nonlinear optics

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.
