Special Issue "Quantum Optics for Fundamental Quantum Mechanics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 April 2019
The purpose of this Special Issue is attracting publications that report theoretical and/or experimental works on the use of quantum optical systems for investigating the fundamental properties of physics and, in particular, of quantum mechanics. Topics include the study of quantum correlations and their application (quantum-enhanced measurements, etc.), the specific quantum properties of optical fields (as squeezing, entanglement, etc. ), quantum thought experiments, emergent properties from entanglement, quantum causality, Planck scale physics and quantum mechanics, the simulation of physical phenomena (such as black holes, closed time-like curves, etc.) with quantum optical systems, the search for Planck scale effects (or other “new physics”) with quantum optical set-ups, quantum mechanics in space, and new fields of research prompted by quantum optical methods.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
