New Editor-in-Chief for EPJD – Prof Tommaso Calarco

Prof. Tommaso Calarco

The publishers of European Physical Journal D: Atomic, Molecular, Optical and Plasma Physics are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Editor-in-Chief, Professor Tommaso Calarco of the University of Ulm, Germany.

As Director of the Institute for Complex Quantum Systems and of the Centre for Integrated Quantum Science and Technology at Ulm, Prof Calarco’s research interests cover a broad range of topics in quantum and atom optics, quantum control and quantum information, and he is a member of the High-Level Steering Committee for the Quantum Flagship of the EC.

Prof Calarco has recently joined the Editorial Board for EPJD, and will take on the Editor-in-Chief role from January 2018, succeeding Prof Vladimir Buzek, who comes to the end of his five-year term.

Tom Spicer, Executive Editor for Physics at Springer, said “We are delighted to welcome Professor Calarco to the role of Editor-in-Chief for EPJD. He has an outstanding research record and has been a central figure in successfully driving European support for quantum physics and quantum technologies. We look forward to working with Tommaso and the Editorial Board to further raise the profile of EPJD in the fields of quantum optics and quantum information.”

Prof Calarco adds “I feel very honoured by this appointment. The fields of quantum optics and quantum information are enjoying a very promising expansion, and at the same time important challenges as applications in quantum technologies are being developed and expectations in this sense are growing. A journal such as EPJD can actively contribute to nurturing a strong scientific base in this context.”

EPJD has three Editors-in-Chief, and Prof Calarco joins Prof Andrey Solov’yov (MBN Research Center, Frankfurt am Main) and Prof Holger Kersten (Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel) who have responsibility for sections in atomic and molecular physics and plasma physics respectively.

The publishers of EPJ are EDP Sciences EDP Sciences (the publishing branch of the Société Française de Physique), the Società Italiana di Fisica and Springer.
