Entangle with Optica.

We are celebrating World Quantum Day on 14 April. Our members and our community continue to explore, expand and achieve results in quantum science and technology today and everyday.
Meet Optica Quantum
Announcing Optica Quantum.

Optica Quantum is a new, online-only Gold Open Access journal launching in September 2023 to rapidly disseminate high-impact research results across many sectors of quantum science and technology.

Led by Dr. Michael G. Raymer, University of Oregon, USA, Optica Quantum joins the society’s portfolio of the most-cited journals in optics and photonics and will provide the community with articles of the same exceptional standards for quality, novelty, and significance as its parent journal, Optica.
