Quantum Science and Technology

Book Series AMO Physics © Springer

Contact the editor

This book series is dedicated to one of today's most active and rapidly expanding fields of research and development. 

The series will be a showcase for the growing number of experimental implementations and practical applications of quantum systems. It will include books on the theoretical and mathematical questions relevant to designing and understanding these systems and devices, as well as foundational issues concerning the quantum phenomena themselves. 

The books are written and edited by leading experts, the treatments are designed for graduate students and other researchers already working in, or intending to enter the field of quantum science and technology.

Principles and Methods of Quantum Information Technologies

© Springer

Readers will be introduced to new quantum computing schemes such as quantum annealing machines and coherent Ising machines, which have now arisen as alternatives to standard quantum computers and are designed to successfully address NP-hard/NP-complete combinatorial optimization problems, which are ubiquitous and relevant in our modern life.

Optical Hybrid Quantum Information Processing

Supervised Learning with Quantum Computers

© Springer

Quantum machine learning investigates how quantum computers can be used for data-driven prediction and decision making. The books summarises and conceptualises ideas of this relatively young discipline for an audience of computer scientists and physicists from a graduate level upwards.

Information Encoding

Quantum Error Correction 

© Springer

This text presents an algebraic approach to the construction of several important families of quantum codes derived from classical codes by applying the well-known Calderbank-Shor-Steane (CSS) construction, the Hermitian, and the Steane’s enlargement construction to certain classes of classical codes.

Quantum Error-Correcting Codes

Quantum Computing for the Quantum Curious

© Springer

This open access book makes quantum computing more accessible than ever before. This classroom-tested textbook uses simple language, minimal math, and plenty of examples to explain the three key principles behind quantum computers: superposition, quantum measurement, and entanglement. It then goes on to explain how this quantum world opens up a whole new paradigm of computing.

Creating Superposition: The Beam Splitter

Will We Ever Have a Quantum Computer?

© Springer

This book addresses a broad community of physicists, engineers, computer scientists and industry professionals, as well as the general public, who are aware of the unprecedented media hype surrounding the supposedly imminent new era of quantum computing.

The Theoretical Quantum Computer and the Physical Reality

Coming Soon... 

Quantum Key Distribution

The textbook presents the necessary mathematical tools without assuming much background, making it accessible to readers without experience in quantum information theory.

Quantum Optics

This book is a thoroughly modern and highly pedagogical graduate-level text has come to occupy a central role in the 'second quantum revolution'.


Minding the Future 

This collection of essays offers important and timely insights into the pasts, presents, and, above all, possible futures of Artificial Intelligence.


Introduction to Quantum Computing

This book provides a self-contained undergraduate course on quantum computing based on classroom-tested lecture notes. 

Quantum Information Processing

This new edition of a well-received textbook provides a concise introduction to both the theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum information at the graduate level.
