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 ›
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?
Could directed pharmacological treatments of the skeleton alter cell membrane function?
A one-day workshop celebrating young researchers at the forefront of Fundamental and Applied Physics in Japan. Register now.
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 ›
Could atmospheric-pressure plasma become the main management to control biofilm related disease in the future？
This week’s Image of the Week is a representative Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) image of an F-actin structure, taken from a recent Topical Review in JPhysD: “Convergence of lateral dynamic measurements in the plasma membrane of live cells from single… Read More ›
A new JPhysD special issue explores the boundaries that play a key role in cell adhesion, signaling, and recognition.
