A one-day workshop celebrating young researchers at the forefront of Fundamental and Applied Physics in Japan. Register now.
Because of their complex macromolecular architecture, polymers do not crystallize easily. In a recent review Simone Napolitano, Emmanouil Glynos and Nicholas B Tito discuss this transition of polymers from a liquid to a glassy state.

We are pleased to announce that the Journal of Physics series, as well as our other journals, and partner journals have had Altmetric badges added to their homepages on IOPScience.
Invited to our special issue on the physics of supercapacitors and electroactuators, Guang Feng and his team explain their work into asymmetrical dications.
Emeritus Professor Risto Niemen of Aalto University, a computational and theoretical condensed-matter physicist, talks about his work, the great outdoors and how computational models are driving materials discovery.
In this week’s image of the week we highlight the third-order conductances of graphene nanoribbons (GNR).
David J. Thouless, F. Duncan M. Haldane and J. Michael Kosterlitz win this year’s Nobel Prize for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter.
To celebrate the release of ‘Butterfly in the Quantum World’ we spoke to Indu Satija on why the Hofstadter butterfly is so important and her experiences of writing the book.
Integral to any of the form of peer review is the reviewers themselves. As part of Peer Review Week, John Inglesfield, a JPCM Board Member and experienced reviewer answered our questions about peer review from a referee’s point of view.
As part of Peer Review Week find out from our Editors what really happens between submission and publication of a paper.
This year the Joint European Magnetic Symposia (JEMS) is being hosted in Glasgow, Scotland. The symposium will cover the latest developments in magnetism and magnetic materials and has a number of international invited and plenary speakers. With what is said… Read More ›
Electronic density functional theory (DFT) will be well known to anyone working in condensed matter physics, especially those trying to predict complex behavior at the atomic scale. However fewer will be familiar with classical DFT.
Towards a unifying description of material properties and interfacial growth in semiflexible filament networks.
Ultrasensitive detection, biological sensor, chemical sensor, even applications in environmental science, the potential for 3D plasmonic nanostructures in plasmon enhanced fluorescence (PEF) is fairly impressive.
This weeks image comes from a paper by Shoichi Tanimoto et al who use molecular dynamics the 3D reference interaction site model (3D-RISM) method to examine the ion dependancy of carbohydrate binding in the carbohydrate-binding module family 36 (CBM36).
