      This Special Issue is guest-edited by Frank Steglich, Oliver Stockert, Steffen Wirth and contains selected papers that were presented at the International Conference on Quantum Criticality and Novel Phases (QCNP 2009). The cover picture refers to the Editor's Choice article by Hannes Kühne and co-workers on pages 671-675. It depicts the quantum critical behavior of the low frequency spin excitations in the magnetic field versus temperature diagram of the S = 1/2 antiferromagnetic Heisenberg chain system copper pyrazine dinitrate (CuPzN). The vertical parameter is the NMR spin-lattice relaxation rate T1−1, which is a measure for the density of spin excitations in this system. In the vicinity of the quantum critical point a drastic increase of T1−1 marks the transition between a Luttinger liquid and a fully polarized phase.

      Is quantum criticality a key to unconventional superconductivity? The observation of superconductivity in the vicinity of a magneti-cally ordered phase prompts an idea that quantum fluctuations associated with a magnetic quantum critical point may provide the glue to form superconducting electron pairs. Often, however, a superconducting phase veils the presence of a quantum critical point, making it difficult to prove or disprove the conjecture. In their article, Tuson Park et al. report measurements of the electri-cal resistivity of CeRhIn5 at its optimal pressure where the super-conducting transition temperature is a maximum. When super-conductivity is suppressed by a magnetic field, these experiments provide evidence for the presence of a putative quantum critical point. For the complete article go to page 553.
