Quantum sensing is a rapidly-growing field of research, which seeks to harness the novel properties and behaviour of quantum mechanical systems and phenomena to create the next generation of sensors. Such approaches have, thus far, led to the realisation of sensors exhibiting enhanced sensitivity and/or spatial resolution compared to conventional sensors, as well as the discovery of exciting new sensing modalities. Quantum sensors have been implemented using a variety of physical platforms, from atomic vapours and trapped ions, to superconducting circuits and semiconductor spin qubits, allowing precise measurements of quantities as diverse as time, frequency, acceleration, rotation, force, magnetic field, electric field, and temperature.
In order to highlight some of the latest advances in the field of quantum sensing, we would like to invite you to submit a manuscript to our upcoming Special Issue, “Sensors Based on Quantum Phenomena”, to be published in mid-2018. We welcome submissions of both original research papers and review articles covering any aspect of quantum sensing, with a particular emphasis on experimental implementations of quantum sensors for real-world applications.Dr. Jean-Philippe Tetienne

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. Sensors 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 2000 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.
