Quantum computers promise to perform certain tasks that are believed to be intractable on classical computers. In recent years, the first milestone in quantum computing, the quantum computational advantage over classical computations, has already been demonstrated on several experimental platforms. However, due to the temporary limitations in precision and scale of current quantum hardware, near-term quantum computing is restricted to the noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) regime.
Even though universal quantum computing is still far out of reach, quantum computing for specialized problems still finds many intriguing applications. Recent applications include, but are not restricted to, the areas of quantum simulation, quantum metrology, quantum chemistry, quantum optimization and machine learning, for either pedagogical purposes or industrial interests. Rapid progress in physically realizing these applications involve multiple candidates, including superconducting circuits, trapped ions, optical photons, ultracold neutral atoms, and quantum dots. Joint theoretical efforts also play a vital role in pushing this vibrant field forward.
This QST focus collection has been organized in collaboration with the 2022 World Young Scientist Summit (WYSS) and the IOP Quantum 2022 workshop. This collection offers an interdisciplinary arena to discuss the progress, challenges, opportunities in quantum computing, metrology and simulation. We also want to bring together new quantum theories that boosts our understanding of the capabilities of quantum computation and sensing and/or suggests new applications.
Authors presenting their research at the WYSS workshop may be directly invited to submit to this focus issue. However, the Editors welcome proposals and submissions from the community. If you believe you have a suitable research article in preparation, please send your pre-submission query either to the journal publishing team at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the Guest Editors listed above.
