Microrobotic actuation at its finest.
Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics
Professor Marcus Müller and Dr Yuliya Smirnova from Georg-August-Universität Göttingen spoke to us about their research and their predictions for the direction of the field.
Looking at some of the most downloaded content across the JPhys series of journals.
As we move into the new year, I take a look back at some of the biggest science stories that captured our interest in 2015.
It’s been a busy, exciting, and fantastically successful year for the JPhys+ blog and Journal of Physics series and we’re all looking forward to what the new year will bring.
Our last Christmas image of the week.
Food is amazing, and not just to eat. So before you tuck into your dinner tonight or think about celebratory delights like Champagne, take a look at how your food works.
We talk to Dr Yann Cressault from the LAPLACE Laboratory in Toulouse, France about thermal plasmas and electrical arcs, and what interests him outside of science.
Learn more about the physics of nanoscale semiconducting devices.
Is it a butterfly or a bipolar strain curve?
Dr Andreas Berger; Researcher Director at CIC nanoGUNE in Spain, and Section Editor of the Applied magnetism and magnetic materials section speaks to us about his research, what motivates him and where he thinks the field of magnetism is heading.
Just one of the things we’re doing to make sure great science can get to the right people.
Overcoming the diffraction limit in optical microscopy has been a major barrier in obtaining high-resolution images in biophysical and biomedical research. Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics (JPhysD) have just published “The 2015 super-resolution microscopy roadmap”, discussing how researchers have developed super-resolution microscopy to overcome this limit.
Graphene is one of the most studied materials, possessing extraordinary properties including great tensile strength — on the order of GPa (gigapascals) — and is popular in the fields of electronics, semiconductors and photovoltaics. One method of producing good quality graphene films involves… Read More ›
Anna Fontcuberta i Morral: an interview with Section Editor of JPhysD’s new renewable energy and sustainability section
As JPhysD launches its new section on the physics of renewable energy and sustainability, we got talking to its Section Editor; Professor Anna Fontcuberta i Morral.
Time for another image of the week from a paper recently publishing in JPhysD examining a two-dimensional (2D) material. This time, single-layer phosphorene.
This week we bring you a video feature on recent research into new optical fibres and take the opportunity to showcase some top research from across the JPhys series on light and optical technology as part of the International Year of Light. Lasers, invisibility cloaks, plasmas, nanophotonics and more
