This JCP special topic issue aims to highlight state-of-the-art research in the applications of quantum light in chemical physics, physical chemistry, and closely related fields. Examples of quantum light are single photons, entangled photon pairs, and quadrature-squeezed light, all of which play important roles in the rapidly rising field of quantum information science. The ability to create, manipulate, interact, and measure quantum states of light has potential to offer unprecedented improvements in sensing, metrology, imaging, and spectroscopy, among other areas. Papers are solicited from across the wide range of related research, including sources and detectors of quantum light, novel proposals or demonstrations of techniques offering unique advantages of quantum light in physical chemistry, molecular physics, and solid-state science, and other related areas.
