We are delighted to announce the relaunch of Journal of Electronic Science and Technology (JEST). This journal is dedicated to providing a forum for scientists and engineers to discuss issues of common interest in the field of modern electronic science and technology.
The rapid development of electronic science and technology in the last 20 years has changed the course of human society, boosting the performance of a wide range of items, from electronic devices/systems in smartphones and cameras, to computers and electric cars. Traditional electronic science and technology is focused on developing electronic materials and devices, as well as reducing their size and power dissipation. However, the current integration scale of electronic chips has reached several nanometers and there are great challenges around further scaling down device sizes to the atomic level. In recent years, advanced photonic and quantum devices have become capable of manipulating quantum states of light/matter to achieve fundamental performance advantages over classical electronic devices. For instance, Google has recently announced the realisation of quantum supremacy based on a quantum chip with 54 qubits, exhibiting a much higher computing speed than conventional electronic computers. This impressive progress paves the way for in-depth innovation in 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
- Signal Processing and Image Processing
Our primary aim is to promote the development of fundamental research and practical application across all areas of advanced electronic science and technology. The latest volume of JEST is comprised of two special sections on quantum information processing and cooperative communications, which could be very valuable to the communities in these fields.
Finally, we would like to thank our authors, reviewers and editorial board for their contributions and support.
