Interests: particle detectors for space applications; gamma rays; cosmic rays
Cosmic rays (CR) are one of our best probes to study and try to understand the Universe. In particular, the study of charged cosmic rays is the base of high-energy particle physics and nowadays is one of the widest and most active research fields. The cosmic ray energy spectrum spans more than 12 orders of magnitude from few MeV up to tens or hundreds of PeV and the detection techniques are very different ranging from ballong flights to space missions and ground-based experiments. The scientific items are also very different and cover different fields form CR origin, acceleration, and propagation mechanisms in the Universe,to the effect of CR on human activity in space This Special Issue will focus on the latest advancements in charged cosmic ray physics with both direct and indirect detection methods and provide a landscape for future experiments and discoveries in the growing field of cosmic ray science.

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. Quantum Beam Science 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 1600 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.
