Could 2D materials open new avenues for magnetic tunnel junctions and spin electronics?
Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics
This week’s image of the week is a vector plot of the function (10) from the JPhysD article Spin-transfer-driven oscillations of the magnetic quasi-vortex in a dot with crystalline cubic anisotropy Andrzej Janutka and Przemysław Gawroński 2017 J. Phys. D:… Read More ›
Can we understand the cell membrane structure using chemistry tricks?
In their recent Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics special issue paper, invited as part of our Emerging Leaders special issue, Rachel Grange et al investigate the use of nanoscale materials in nonlinear optics. The goal of the Optical Nanomaterial Group at… Read More ›
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the prestigious JPhys series. Find out more about how we are marking the occasion…
How functional can fibers become? Using a scalable thermal drawing process, we fabricated polymer fibers with a cantilever-like cross-sectional structure capable of sensing and localizing touch.
Hybrid nanostructures can be implemented as efficient and selective photocatalysts in water remediation technologies
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.
Can small scale experiments help to understand and quantify granular flows at the geophysical scale?
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 ›
Could directed pharmacological treatments of the skeleton alter cell membrane function?
This week’s image of the week is a typical spectral map with a set of lines of spectra for exchange spin waves, both in coordinates kAa, kBa. The image is taken from the article “Formation of the band spectrum of… Read More ›
Why do apparently simple nanomagnets exhibit such complicated behaviours?
Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics recently published a fascinating Topical Review by leading 2D materials scientist, Guy Le Lay (Aix-Marseille Université). Guy and his co-authors focus on new elemental 2D materials such as silicene, phosphorene, germanene and stanene, discussing… Read More ›
