Recent breakthroughs in Quantum Technology and Science in Space have opened new windows for understanding the boundaries of modern physics and established true landmarks for modern technology. In this Special Topic Collection of AVS Quantum Science, we welcome experimental and theoretical contributions that will enlighten readers about the recent progress and the new direction in this rich field. Original research and review articles will be accepted, highlighting the challenges in any aspect of the theme. Topics that are directly or indirectly quantum technology and science in space are welcome.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Testing of Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics in space
- Testing of Einstein’s Equivalent Principle in space
- Gravitational Physics in space
- Search for Ultralight Dark Matter in space
- Quantum Simulation in space
- Quantum Technology in space: entangled photons, quantum communication, cold atoms, atomic interferometry, microwave atomic clocks, optical clocks, etc.
