Time for another image of the week from a paper recently publishing in JPhysD examining a two-dimensional (2D) material. This time, single-layer phosphorene.
This week we bring you a video feature on recent research into new optical fibres and take the opportunity to showcase some top research from across the JPhys series on light and optical technology as part of the International Year of Light. Lasers, invisibility cloaks, plasmas, nanophotonics and more
Congratulations to Professor Leanne Pitchford and Professor Gerrit Kroesen, joint winners of this year’s Von Engel & Franklin Prize. The Prize was announced at this year’s International Conference on Phenomena in Ionized Gases (ICPIG) and is awarded biennially for outstanding… Read More ›
Our congratulations go to Professor Nikolay Zheudev of Southampton University for being awarded IOP’s Young Medal. Nikolay was presented the award in recognition of his global leadership and pioneering, seminal work in optical metamaterials and nanophotonics. Nikolay has served as… Read More ›
A symmetry-breaking transition from a turbulent to a self-organized state
As a newer member of JPhysD’s editorial team I am excited to say that I, along with JPhysD’s publisher Tom Miller, will soon be headed to the sunny shores of California for Compound Semiconductor Week (CSW) 2015 in Santa Barbara.
An exciting community of researchers are moving from the fundamentals to practical real-world applications. Read this post to find out about my week at Phononics 2015.
In a recent topical review published in JPhysD, Shengqiang Zhou, from Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) in Dresden Germany, discusses the challenges associated with preparing dilute ferromagnetic semiconductor (DFS) materials.
Historic spintronics paper translated and made freely available in New Journal of Physics
Glow discharges with electrostatic confinement of fast electrons, of which the best known example are hollow cathode discharges (HCDs), are widely used for diverse technological applications such as light sources, high-power electric switches and electric propulsion, amongst others. In a recent… Read More ›
Next week Phononics 2015 kicks off its third conference. Find out who’s on the programme here.
This week’s image comes to us from researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Anirban Basu et al, have developed a portable x-ray source to image low-atomic number, or low-Z materials, such as biological tissues. In their recent paper published in… Read More ›
Read more about the introduction of JPhysD’s Advisory Panel.
Come and visit the IOP Publishing booth at the E-MRS Spring 2015 meeting in Lille, from 12-14 May.
JPhysD has recently published a special issue in the rapidly growing field of aluminium plasmonics. Guest Editors Davy Gérard and Stephen K Gray hope the two reviews and seven original research papers in this issue will give the reader an interesting… Read More ›
March saw the two-day conference Magnetism 2015, organised by the Institute of Physics (IOP) and held at The University of Leeds, attended by almost 250 members of the magnetism community. JPhysD‘s Jennifer recaps some of the research presented.
Graphene researchers Walt de Heer and Claire Berger and their colleagues at the joint Georgia Tech-CNRS Lab and CNRS-Institute Néel have demonstrated an original method for depositing epitaxial graphene on SiC using a silicon nitride mask. The mask decomposes and… Read More ›
