British Science Week – Celebrating British Science in Journal of Physics
British Science Week starts on Monday, running from the 10th to the 19th of March. Organised by the British Science Association, British Science Week celebrates science, technology, engineering and mathematics across the UK with events all over the country. Here at JPhys+, we thought this would be a great excuse to highlight a selection of some of the great research produced by our authors based in the UK.
JPhys50 – Celebrating women in physics
As part of International Women’s Day 2017, we are delighted to present a selection of papers written by female rising stars in physics today: Lara Anderson is an Assistant Professor of Physics and Affiliate Professor of Mathematics at Virginia Tech…. Read More ›

“This field of research is…like a terribly fun puzzle” – an interview with Professor Bryce Gadway
Professor Bryce Gadway is the head of the Gadway Lab at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Gadway and his group perform experiments on ultracold atomic quantum gases, in particular relating to quantum simulation. He recently published a Topical Review in JPhysB on Strongly interacting ultracold polar molecules, and we took some time to talk to him about his research and the field of AMO physics.
