Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

The field of trapped ions is probably the most promising platform for the development of quantum technologies and science, thanks to the continuous technological advances that have allowed for the efficient control of light and matter at the single-particle level. Indeed, trapped ions offer the largest coherence times and fidelities, including also some of the largest experiments with qubits oriented to quantum information processing tasks. Due to these properties, ions constitute the building blocks of numerous developments during the most recent years, spanning a wide range of applications such as small quantum computers and simulators, design of exotic entangled states, or magnetic field sensors, among others.

Apart from the practical applications, trapped ions are essential for fundamental research, such as in testing the postulates of quantum mechanics or validation of the laws of thermodynamics at the quantum level.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect novel and original works in the burgeoning field of trapped ions with a special emphasis on quantum information applications.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
