Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Quantum materials and quantum devices play a pivotal role in implementing quantum science and technology as they provide the fundamental hardware playground for quantum computations, quantum communications, quantum measurement, etc. In the past twenty years, tremendous progress and exciting achievements have been made in the field of quantum materials and quantum devices, including the discovery of exotic topological quantum states of matter and novel superconductivity, as well as the combination of the two. The formation of these exotic quantum states is closely related to the presence or lack of certain symmetries in the system. In this Special Issue, we aim to report the recent theoretical and experimental advancements in this rapidly developing field of quantum materials and quantum devices. Both original and the review articles are welcome.

Dr. Deng Peng
Guest Editor

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. Symmetry 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 2400 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.
