    In recent years, pioneering theoretical and experimental works showed that the method of periodic driving, so-called ‘Floquet engineering’, opens the door to a plethora of new phenomena in quantum materials and quantum simulations. This Focus Collection strives to provide and curate, as a single resource, a venue for the latest research and interesting findings on Floquet engineering of quantum systems.

    In recent years, several works revealed that networks of coupled optical oscillators, e.g., lasers and optical parametric oscillators, show a great promise for emulating a classical spin model. This Collection aims to curate, as a single resource, interesting research articles on the subject and accelerate the formation of a roadmap for future research directions of the field.
