The Journal of Low Temperature Physics focuses on advancing understanding in all areas of low temperature physics and cryogenics by publishing original papers and review articles ranging from theoretical to experimental findings. The journal encourages submissions on emergent areas of low temperature investigations and novel theories. The primary topics of interest include superconductivity; quantum solids, liquids and gases; quantum information; quantum electronics and devices; topological systems; condensed matter physics at low temperatures; and low temperature technology. The journal also publishes Rapid Communications, Technical Notes, and Special Issues which include selected peer-reviewed contributions from noted conferences.

  • Disseminates fundamental theoretical and experimental advances in all areas of low temperature physics and cryogenics
  • Emphasizes on novel physical problems and challenges at low temperatures 
  • Publishes Rapid Communications and Topical Issues, including conference-based special issues, in addition to Original Articles and Reviews
  • Anchored in the low temperature community since the journal’s inception in 1969
