Professor Sir Tom Kibble is one of the world’s most respected particle physicists, and narrowly missed out on a Nobel Prize. After writing ‘Monopoles on Strings’ for JPhysG’s 40th anniversary collection, we decided to ask him a few questions.
Synthesis and decay of superheavy nuclei is the subject of our image of the week this week. Nuclear mass measurements and predictions are of great importance, but it turns out the theory is rather complex. As the main decay route… Read More ›
Alongside a knighthood from the Queen in 2014, Sir Tejinder has won a raft of awards. We find out more about the man behind the mind, the importance of the Large Hadron Collider and what inspired him to become the successful physicist he is today.
The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory’s new report shows the world why it will be an important step in our understanding of the universe we live in.
The CERN collaboration’s latest paper on the arxiv shows evidence of a new form of matter.
Nothing to do with the one you sit on.
OK, so it’s not really magic. This cube represents a simple, yet important construct used in many disciplines across the sciences today.
At the point where different fields interact we often see the most ingenious of ideas, and the most incredible breakthroughs. The CIPANP conference and JPhysG both aim to support researchers working at these intersections.
Every month the JPhysG Publisher chooses the pick of the month. After two years of selections, we take a look back at some of the top work published in the journal.
With the LHC finally running again, take a look at what’s next for the ALICE experiment during the next shutdown in 2018.
Our new sister journal complements the Journal of Physics‘ bio- sections to provide the first interdisciplinary journal for physical oncologists.
The joint group meeting of the IOP’s particle, nuclear and astrophysics sections took place this week at the University of Manchester, UK. I was lucky enough to be in the crux of things as the conference developed.
Manchester will soon be host to a gaggle of nuclear, particle and astro- physicists for the 2015 IOP group meeting. The city’s famous ‘Curry Mile’ had best be well stocked.
Cake and sparkling wine help us talk about blogging, the Journal of Physics series and more.
Are you in North Africa or Europe? Don’t miss the solar spectacle this Friday, 20 March.
No pepperoni or cheese here – these pizzas illustrate the shape evolution of nuclei from the spherical to the prolate.
A helping hand for particle physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
