Quantum sensors exploit our ability to control atoms and subatomic particles at will, and even place them within a particular quantum state, which is likewise extremely sensitive to minimal disturbances in the environment. They offer both unique sensitivity and accuracy and are about to revolutionize detection in several fields: Medicine, civil engineering, telecommunications, natural resources management as well as fundamental physics. Application of these sensors covers motion (including acceleration, rotation, and gravity) electric and magnetic fields, and imaging. They can provide very accurate measurements across many frequencies, have no drift, or need to calibrate and rely on advanced quantum techniques, such as squeezing or entanglement to improve sensitivity or precision. Still large in size, complicated, and extremely experimental, these sensors are becoming a major pillar of quantum technologies. This special collection will present recent progress of this technology, show how the next generations will shrink, integrate, and improve their performance to expand their range of applications.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Quantum sensing
- Quantum metrology
- Quantum technology,
- High precision measurements
AQS Organizing Editor:
If you are interested in contributing Original Research, a Review, or a Perspective Article 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. 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.
