Quantum technologies are a rapidly emerging field. Many countries and large corporations are ramping up their investment in quantum technology, particularly in quantum information processing. However, these systems require extremely fast and precise controls because, over time, quantum systems lose their “coherence”, which refers to the ability to make interference and superposition of states. Maintaining this “coherence” is at the heart of all the mechanisms utilized in quantum technology. Therefore, the key to the further advancement of quantum technology relies on fast and accurate quantum control protocols. However, finding an optimum temporal and spatial dependence of the control field for high-speed manipulations is extremely challenging because fast controls require a strong control field, which can easily cause undesirable perturbation to the system, thus, negating its useful superposition.
This Special Issue of Universe is devoted to recent developments in the methodology of fast, efficient, and accurate controls of quantum systems and their applications. This Special Issue not only focuses on practical purposes, but also aims to deepen the understanding of the world from the perspective of high-fidelity quantum control.
Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Methodology and applications of fast and accurate quantum controls.
- Improvements of the efficiency of qubit gate operations, chemical reactions, and the engineering of electromagnetic environments of solid-state quantum systems.
- Dynamical properties of controllable quantum systems.

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. Universe is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. 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.
