On the launch of Journal of Electronic Science and Technology

The rapid development of electronic science and technology in the last twenty years has changed the course of human society due to its widespread applications in integrated circuits and systems, wireless telecommunication, computer science, automatic control, medical techniques and artificial intelligence etc., boosting the performance of electronic devices/systems in smartphones, cameras, computers and electric automobiles which are commonly used in our modern daily life. Traditional electronic science and technology is focused on developing electronic materials and devices as well as reducing the device size and power dissipation. However, the current integration scale of electronic chips has reached several nanometers and is facing great challenges with further scaling the device size down to atomic level. In recent years, the emerging advanced photonic and quantum devices are capable of manipulating quantum states of light/matter to achieve fundamental performance advantages over classical electronic devices. For instance, Google has recently announced the realization of quantum supremacy based on a quantum chip with 54 qubits, exhibiting a much higher computing speed than the conventional electronic computers. These impressive progress of integrated photonic quantum technologies paves the way for the in-depth innovation of electronic science and technology.

Here, we are delighted to announce the relaunch of a traditional journal of “Journal of Electronic Science and Technology (JEST)” with a new face. This journal is dedicated to providing a forum for scientists and engineers to dedicate on the issues of common interests in the field of modern electronic science and technology. The scope of JEST covers interdisciplinary and newly emerging areas including Communication Technology, Computer Science and Information Technology, Information and Network Security, Bioelectronics and Biomedicine, Neural Networks and Intelligent Systems, Electronic Systems and Array Processing, Optoelectronic and Photonic Technologies, Electronic Materials and Devices, Sensing and Measurement, as well as Signal Processing and Image Processing. More specifically, to promote the development of fundamental research and practical application across all areas of advanced electronic science and technology is our primary aim. The latest volume of JEST is comprised of two special sections related to quantum information processing and cooperative communications, which could be very valuable to the community of these fields.

Finally, we would like to thank our authors, reviewers as well as the editorial board all for their contribution and support.
