We thought we understood magnetron plasmas, but the discovery of spokes shows that we did not!
We’re at the 23rd International Symposium on Plasma Chemistry – come say hi!
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.
This week’s Image of the Week is taken from M A Lino et al 2017 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 50 305103. In this paper the authors investigate the feasibility of producing Single Electron Transistors from Black Phosphorus Quantum Dots. The… Read More ›
JPhysD presents the 2017 Plasma Roadmap: the first of a planned series of periodic updates to the original Plasma Roadmap that was published in 2012.
“I am hoping that there will be an even higher level of cooperation and collaboration amongst researchers and clinicians in this field, leading to larger, multi-centre clinical trials of plasma in wound decontamination/healing and cancer therapy.”
This week’s image is taken from the recent Emerging Leaders article by Endre J Szili, Nishtha Gaur, et al. It shows DNA-strand breaks within a gelatin tissue model after treatment with a neutral He gas jet. The figure is an overlay of phase-contrast… Read More ›
Take a look at our JPhysD Roadmap programme. This collection aims to bring together some of the leading voices in the most exciting areas in the physical sciences. Unique to IOP Publishing, these articles are written collaboratively by leading researchers… Read More ›
Next generation biomedical smart systems will rely on creative integration of microfluidics and magnetic sensors for high-performance biosensors
Could 2D materials open new avenues for magnetic tunnel junctions and spin electronics?
This week’s image of the week is a vector plot of the function (10) from the JPhysD article Spin-transfer-driven oscillations of the magnetic quasi-vortex in a dot with crystalline cubic anisotropy Andrzej Janutka and Przemysław Gawroński 2017 J. Phys. D:… Read More ›
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.
