Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics: Highlight news

The latest edition of the journal’s Highlights featuring articles selected by the Editorial Board is now available online. Unlike early editions of these Highlights, which excluded special or focus issue papers, we are nowadays considering all types of articles for inclusion in this collection. When not published under a gold Open Access (OA) mandate, all highlight articles are free-to-read until 31 December 2017.

Among all recommendations, 3 research papers have been highly commended, namely:

1 – Observation of autoionization dynamics and sub-cycle quantum beating in electronic molecular wave packets by M Reduzzi et al where the authors are proposing to “resolve the dynamics of autoionizing states on the femtosecond timescale and observe the sub-cycle evolution of a coherent electronic wave packet in a diatomic molecule, exploiting a tunable ultrashort extreme ultraviolet pulse and a synchronized infrared field”.

2 – Angle resolved photoelectron spectroscopy of two-color XUV–NIR ionization with polarization control by S Düsterer et al where the authors present “a comprehensive study of the influence of the angle between the polarization directions of the NIR and XUV fields on the two-color angle-resolved photoelectron spectra of He and Ne”.

3 – Casimir effect for a Bose–Einstein condensate inside a cylindrical tube by Shyamal Biswas et al whose “analytical result predicts Casimir force on a cylindrical shallow of 4He well below the λ-point, and can be tested experimentally”.

We hope you will be able to take a moment to view the whole collection and congratulate the authors who have been highlighted this year.
