Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print and on CD-ROM. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique, consistent, permanent citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages. Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit CID Number.

This conference on Quantum Optics in the frame of the SPIE Photonics Europe 2014 was arranged for the third time in Brussels, Belgium. It was devoted to the recent scientific advances at the interface between quantum optics and atom optics. During the last decades, the studies of fundamental issues in quantum mechanics exploded from their originally confidential circle of specialists and became a major field of research that covers a large range of sub-disciplines, from nanotechnologies to quantum optics, including Bose-Einstein condensates, single photon sources, squeezed light, technologies for engineering quantum states and manipulating single atoms and ions, as well as quantum dots, etc. Although those researches are clearly foundationally oriented, they fit closely to experiments and already found amazingly successful applications in top-level metrology (spectroscopy, atomic clocks, measure of fundamental constants and so on) and quantum information (quantum cryptography and computing). The conference aimed at bringing a great opportunity to listen to some of the world renowned experts in these interconnected disciplines, as well as to discover new trends that result from the convergence of these fields. It offered an updated review of recent activities both in theoretical and experimental research. The conference programme and all manuscripts included in this volume cover the following topics:

  • Nonclassical field states

  • Quantum entanglement and EPR states

  • Quantum states engineering and reconstruction

  • Quantum memory for light, quantum interfaces, slow light, EIT

  • Optomechanical devices

  • Quantum communication and information processing

  • Colour centers in diamond

  • Quantum cryptography

  • Nonlinear optics in graphene

  • Quantum light in cavity

  • Quantum key distribution

In conclusion, we thank all the conference participants and the authors of the submitted manuscripts for their contributions. Our special thanks also go the members of the program committee of this conference for their involvement into setting a good program.
