Our image of the week comes from Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter and a recent paper from Junje Zhang et al. investigating the chemisoption of hydrogen on graphene using molecular dynamics.

Talat Rahman is a Distinguished and Pegasus Professor at the Department of Physics, University of Central Florida, and section editor of the new Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter section on Physics of Chemical Processes.

In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Maciej Bieniek, Tomasz Woźniak and Paweł Potasz investigate atomically thin bismuth nanostructures in the context of stability of their topological properties.

Zacharias Fthenakis and Nektarios Lathiotakis propose a fast and accurate description of the mechanical response of any 2D structure under any strain conditions.

Could alloy melt structure in an electromagnetic field be accurately characterized by electrical parameters? What`s the relationship between these electrical parameters and solidification microstructures?

We caught up with Dr Arash Nikoubashman a young researcher at Johannes Gutenberg Universität Mainz, to discuss his recent work in soft matter and complex fluids and the motivation behind his research.

In a recent JPCM paper an effective structure descriptor was developed to assess the similarity between atomic structures and to remove redundant entries of similar structures in the database. Statistical data give an important insight for material discovery.
