EPJ Quantum Technology: Special issue on Quantum Magnetometers


Quantum sensing of magnetic fields is one of the fast-moving areas of Quantum Technologies. EPJ Quantum Technology welcomes submissions to a special issue on Quantum Magnetometers, devices that utilize a quantum system, coherence and/or entanglement to measure magnetic fields with advanced properties compared to classical devices.

We invite you to submit Research Articles of experimental and theoretical work within the topic of Quantum Magnetometers. Possible subtopics include, but are not limited to:

  • Optically-pumped magnetometers, including those based on cold atoms, hot atomic vapors, and trapped ions.
  • Solid-state quantum magnetometers, including those based on NV centers and superconducting and spin qubits.
  • Applications of quantum magnetometers, including biomedical applications such as brain imaging (magnetoencephalography MEG).
  • Quantum-enhanced techniques including those involving entanglement or squeezing.


Submissions of Research Articles are accepted from now until 31 December 2019 . Check out the Submission Guidelines for further information on preparing your manuscript.
