In today’s blog, we asked Professor Pavel Jelinek from Nanosurf Lab and Palacky University Olomouc to talk about the focus of his recent Topical Review published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, which details the remarkable recent progress made in the… Read More ›
This week’s image comes from a recent paper by Rittweger et al., published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, in which they investigate the electronic transport properties of face-centred cubic (fcc) bulk Pb in the presence of electron-phonon interaction. Using ab initio methods, Rittweger et… Read More ›
Chalmers et al. explain why watching ink (or paint) dry turns out to be rather interesting.
How can we investigate the small structures inside our cells using super-resolution microscopy?
Can the adsorption of transition metals functionalize the novel 2D material borophene for nanoelectronic applications? In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Alvarez-Quiceno et al. perform a systematic first-principles investigation aimed at answering this question. They discuss their findings… Read More ›
Tetragonally strained interstitial Fe-Co-B alloys: beyond large magnetocrystalline anisotropy
Effects of non-coplanar spin texture and spin scalar chirality
Image of the week: Profiles of the matter density and electron fraction inside a massive neutron star
Our Image of the Week is taken from the JPhysG article Neutrino pair annihilation above merger remnants: implications of a long-lived massive neutron star, which was published within our Emerging Leaders Special Issue. Specifically, this is a vertical slice (x… Read More ›
Söngen et al. discuss their recent Special Issue paper, in which they develop a new method for quantitative analysis of AFM data applicable to any mode.
It is a common observation that the resistance of a conducting film on a flexible substrate increases when subjected to strain, albeit with a few exceptions (such as a variant of conducting polymer PEDOT: PSS, where the reverse is observed)…. Read More ›
Could ultrashort circularly polarized light pulses be the key for next-generation spintronic devices?
Image of the Week: Band inversion due to anisotropic spin-orbit coupling results in a Lifshitz transition in disordered graphene
This week’s image is from a paper recently published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter: The influence of anisotropic Rashba spin–orbit coupling on current-induced spin polarization in graphene. This work by Mir Vahid Hosseini uses Green’s function method and linear response theory to… Read More ›
Here at IOP Publishing we are proud to recognize the invaluable service that our reviewers provide the scientific community. To celebrate their contribution, last year we awarded 1391 Outstanding Reviewer awards, and 39 Reviewer of the Year awards across our journals. Here, we interview Dr Christian Beck of Universite de Strasbourg, France, 2016 Reviewer of the Year for Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics
For the first time, a 7×7 intensity modulation of electronic band structure has been observed in the 7×7–reconstructed Si(111) surface. Sheverdyaeva et al. give an account of their research published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter.
