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 ›
Hybrid nanostructures can be implemented as efficient and selective photocatalysts in water remediation technologies
Can small scale experiments help to understand and quantify granular flows at the geophysical scale?
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 ›
