In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in devices that leverage quantum phenomena. Quantum-based devices are poised to move into a variety of fields including computing, sensing, and communication. In order to create quantum technologies that work at room temperature and resist decoherence, new materials and new platforms are required. This Special Topic on Materials for Quantum Technologies will allow researchers in this rapidly expanding and evolving field to share their most recent results.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- New materials and platforms for qubits and quantum computing
- Synthesis and characterization of quantum materials including
- Strongly-correlated electron systems
- Materials with non-trivial topology
- Strongly-coupled materials
- Defects and other single-photon sources
- Low-dimensional materials and structures
- Device architectures for quantum sensing

Submission and acceptance criteria:
Manuscripts considered for publication as Articles in Journal of Applied Physics are expected to meet the journal’s standards of acceptance, i.e. to report on original and timely results that significantly advance understanding in the current status of contemporary applied physics: material that is exclusively review in nature is not considered for publication. Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Journal of Applied Physics’ Editors’ Team will issue final decisions on the submitted manuscripts.
