Our image of the week comes from Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter and a recent paper from Junje Zhang et al. investigating the chemisoption of hydrogen on graphene using molecular dynamics.
How should we think about quantum interference in metals where our established models don’t seem to work?
“By breaking disciplinary barriers, I believe condensed matter physics has placed itself at the frontier of science” – an interview with JPCM section editor Professor Talat Rahman
Talat Rahman is a Distinguished and Pegasus Professor at the Department of Physics, University of Central Florida, and section editor of the new Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter section on Physics of Chemical Processes.
We talk to Pawel Caputa and Marek Rams to find out what motivated their recent J.Phys.A paper on the time evolution of entanglement measures.
How does weak bond disorder affect the classical spin liquid state in a geometrically frustrated Ising Kagome system?
We explore the range of topics covered by JPCM and see how these have evolved over the years
In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Maciej Bieniek, Tomasz Woźniak and Paweł Potasz investigate atomically thin bismuth nanostructures in the context of stability of their topological properties.
Zacharias Fthenakis and Nektarios Lathiotakis propose a fast and accurate description of the mechanical response of any 2D structure under any strain conditions.
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?
Recently Journal of Physics A published a special issue titled “an integrability primer for gauge-gravity duality”which grew out of a GATIS Young Researchers Integrability School held at Durham University in July 2015. The issue was made up of 6 topical reviews based on the lectures delivered at the summer school, aiming to provide a pedagogical introduction to integrability, particularly aspects relevant to the AdS/CFT correspondence.
“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.
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 ›
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.
Aurelien Manchon talks about his recent work in the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter Emerging Leaders special issue
