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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
