Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Quantum optics studies individual quanta of light. In this Special Issue, we call for research in the areas of quantum mechanics including entanglement and teleportation, quantum memory, and quantum information processing. Quantum imaging and quantum neural networks for learning-based image recognition are also of interest in this special issue. Quantum optical encryption, quantum nano-optics, and quantum optical information processing are particularly welcomed.

Quantum symmetry is also a topic of interest in this Special Issue, as well as group theory and symmetry of quantum electrodynamics. New insights connecting symmetry and quantum mechanics are especially welcomed.

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.
