This week’s Image of the Week comes from JPhysD article “Flexible and polarization-controllable diffusion metasurface with optical transparency“, Yaqiang Zhuang et al 2017 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 50 465102. Metasurfaces- planar metamaterials of sub-wavelength thickness- are structures with the ability to manipulate electromagnetic waves… Read More ›
An atmospheric plasma produces many species. But which ones, and what role do they play? We take a closer look.
This week’s Image of the Week comes from JPhysD article ‘Investigation of the effects of melt electrospinning parameters on the direct-writing fiber size using orthogonal design’, Feng-Li He et al 2017 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 50 425601. Melt electrospinning is an effective and simple… 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 ›
