Surface molecular functionalization combines many challenges: from characterizing, understanding and utilizing the surface properties and microscopic chemical entities, to judicious adsorption schemes enabling controlled tailoring of surface and interfacial properties.
CMOS chips are everywhere in our modern age as technology plays an ever increasing part in our lives. This week’s image comes from a recent JPCM review on single donor electronics and quantum functionalities within advanced CMOS technologies. The review… Read More ›
As the cost of producing conventional energy sources continues to grow, the role photocatalysts play in energy conversion technologies becomes more important. Improving the efficiency of photocatalysts has been active area of research for many years, but faces many problems,… Read More ›
Professor Daniel Errandonea talks about the implications of studying materials at high-pressures and what he most enjoys about having a career in physics.
The first image of the week of 2016 comes from our recently published special issue on 2D semiconductors.

In our latest featured author interview Amanda Barnard, an OCE Science Leader and head of the CSIRO Virtual Nanoscience Laboratory, talks to us about her multidiscliplinary research and why using data-driven methods is the future of the field.
The resurgence of research in this area is two-fold according to Guest Editors Carlos Vaz and Urs Staub – come find out why.
When not at conferences or doing peer-review, we too like to keep-up-to date with interesting science. Plus it’s an excuse to surf the web at work! Here’s what we’ve been reading and talking about recently.
Learn more about the physics of nanoscale semiconducting devices.
While this week’s image reminded me of the kaleidoscopes I had as a kid, the paper by A Crepaldi et al actually explores the electronic and structural properties of a lead monolayer grown on a gold substrate.
Here at JPhys+ one of our favourite things to do is search through our published papers to find beautiful figures for our Image of the Week, and you must be happy with our choices as these posts are amoungst our… Read More ›
A new way of creating quantum-mechanical circuits on topological insulators.
