Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Superconductivity is itself a macroscopic quantum phenomenon with such unique features as dissipationless current flow, ideal diamagnetism, magnetic flux quantization, and Cooper pair tunneling. Using advanced thin-film technologies and combining superconductors and materials with distinct electron orderings, we are able to create devices that behave entirely quantum-mechanically. Reproducibility, scalability, and controllability of the hybrid quantum systems allow studying complex quantum phenomena and engineering a variety of quantum circuits whose key parameters, such as energy scales, coupling strengths, and/or operation frequencies may be adjusted with a required precision. At present, superconducting quantum devices are regarded as an outstanding playground for investigating new physics under well-defined boundary conditions.

In the Special Issue, we expect to present a wide panorama of various superconductor-based devices, especially those that are micro- or nano-fabricated and operate at or near the quantum regime. The Special Issue will include experimental and theoretical works dealing with ordinary Josephson junctions playing for superconducting circuitry the same role as transistors for modern semiconductor devices, quantum materials for their fabrication, different kinds of digital setups ranging from quantum bits for quantum information experiments to the most sensitive wideband sensors, and novel ideas concerning their implementation in industry. We also concentrate on hybrid classical-quantum hardware implementing classical-quantum algorithms as well as on interface between superconducting and semiconductor electronics. Special attention is paid to quantum gates and quantum neural network implementation in hardware and in software.

Workshop on Quantum Hardware-Software Systems
Lodz Scientific Association, Lodz, Poland (Łódzkie Towarzystwo Naukowe, ul. M. Skłodowskiej-Curie 11, Łódź, Poland)
We invite you to attend a third day of the hybrid symposium titled: WORKSHOP ON QUANTUM HARDWARE-SOFTWARE SYSTEMS (QHSS 2023) on 8th December 2023. The proceedings will last from 13:00 to 16:20. You can join the symposium via the Zoom platform:

The aim of this meeting is to integrate communities with potential in the development of quantum technologies and to promote knowledge among the public. The organizers are as follows: QHS (Quantum Hardware Systems) and the Łódź Scientific Society.

The event program is available at this link.
Motto of the event: From Quantum Mechanics to Quantum Hardware and Quantum Software

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Quantum Reports is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
