JPhys+ is proud to support CDT-PV, a multicentre team across 7 Universities training highly skilled students in sustainable energy and photovoltaic technologies. Here we catch up with students Joel Smith and Rachael Greenhalgh and their recent training
Our image of the week comes from Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter and a recent paper from Junje Zhang et al. investigating the chemisoption of hydrogen on graphene using molecular dynamics.
We talk to Pawel Caputa and Marek Rams to find out what motivated their recent J.Phys.A paper on the time evolution of entanglement measures.
Can we understand the cell membrane structure using chemistry tricks?
A new way of simulating lattice spin models using ultracold Rydberg atoms
How does weak bond disorder affect the classical spin liquid state in a geometrically frustrated Ising Kagome system?
In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Maciej Bieniek, Tomasz Woźniak and Paweł Potasz investigate atomically thin bismuth nanostructures in the context of stability of their topological properties.
Zacharias Fthenakis and Nektarios Lathiotakis propose a fast and accurate description of the mechanical response of any 2D structure under any strain conditions.
Recently Journal of Physics A published a special issue titled “an integrability primer for gauge-gravity duality”which grew out of a GATIS Young Researchers Integrability School held at Durham University in July 2015. The issue was made up of 6 topical reviews based on the lectures delivered at the summer school, aiming to provide a pedagogical introduction to integrability, particularly aspects relevant to the AdS/CFT correspondence.
We caught up with Dr Arash Nikoubashman a young researcher at Johannes Gutenberg Universität Mainz, to discuss his recent work in soft matter and complex fluids and the motivation behind his research.
In their recent Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics special issue paper, invited as part of our Emerging Leaders special issue, Rachel Grange et al investigate the use of nanoscale materials in nonlinear optics. The goal of the Optical Nanomaterial Group at… Read More ›
In his recently published Emerging Talents paper in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical Thomas Wong investigates a Quantum walk search through potential barriers. Thomas spoke to JPhys+ to explain more about the world of tunneling in quantum search. Quantum… Read More ›
This week’s Image of the Week is a schematic view of an alkali-ion battery on discharge mode. The cathode and anode are shown together with the alkali ions (yellow), the electrolyte (orange) and the separator. The image is taken from… Read More ›
A new technique to describe the dynamics of heavy ion collisions to study strongly interacting matter under extreme conditions
Hi there! You won’t have seen me around this blog before – I have just joined IOP as the new Publisher for 2 journals, including Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics. Prior to IOP I worked as a… Read More ›
In a recent JPCM paper an effective structure descriptor was developed to assess the similarity between atomic structures and to remove redundant entries of similar structures in the database. Statistical data give an important insight for material discovery.
