I am very pleased to bring you this special focus issue on ‘Relativistic Quantum Information’ guest edited by R B Mann and T C Ralph.
This focus issue provides a sample of the state of the art in research in RQI. Some of the articles in this issue review the subject while others provide interesting new results that will stimulate further research. The recent award of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics to Serge Haroche and David J. Wineland for ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems is indicative of the current high level of interest in quantum information; understanding and exploiting the role of relativity is the next frontier.
RQI is beginning to enter the stage at which actual experiments can be contemplated. Some of the articles appearing in this issue discuss some of these exciting new developments. I hope that you will find this focus issue of particular interest and encourage you to share & circulate this with your colleagues and peers.
I hope that you will publish your next paper with CQG and I look forward to working with you soon.
