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?
“Often enough the most interesting answers appear when you least expect them” – an interview with Dr Arash Nikoubashman
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.
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the prestigious JPhys series. Find out more about how we are marking the occasion…
Crystalline thin films may be grown on crystalline surfaces, but not necessarily matching atom-by-atom. Can hexagonal ferrites, a new family of multiferroic materials for energy-efficient applications, have a matching substrate?
This weeks image come from a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper by Viacheslav Chizhikov and Vladimir Dmitrienko. They theoretically investigated the cause of ferroelectric behaviour in the chiral magnet Cu2OSeO3. They found that Ferroelectric properties of cubic chiral… Read More ›
Is KDP a model order-disorder lattice without any displacive component? Not according to NMR.
Aurelien Manchon talks about his recent work in the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter Emerging Leaders special issue
Can phonons be controlled by engineering disorder?
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.
Join us in New Orleans for the annual APS March meeting
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 ›
