This Special Collection, organized by Ivette Fuentes and Philippe Bouyer, aims at revealing the wide scope of cutting-edge applications in quantum metrology and sensing. While sensing beyond the surface of biological systems promise a revolution in detection and diagnosis in healthcare, detecting underground has applications in civil engineering and resource extraction including oil and gas. Quantum sensors not only have important commercial applications, they also promise to deepen our understanding of nature. New sensors might provide answers to fundamental questions at regimes where our understanding of physics is limited by the lack of experimental data. Scientific applications span from the microscopic world including the detection of fundamental particles such as Higgs and neutrinos to applications at cosmological scales where the search of dark energy, fifth forces and dark matter might find its first findings.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Quantum optics
- Qubit clocks
- Quantum engineering
- Quantum magnetism

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.
