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.
