In a recent paper published in JPhysB, researchers collaborating from Greece, France, Germany, The Netherlands and the United States observe a checkerboard interference pattern in the transverse momentum distribution for single-photon ionization of hydrogen atoms in a DC electric field….

Atomic and molecular physics
Can we produce optically enough millimeter-wave radiation to accelerate electrons on a table-top? We hear from Dr Giovanni Cirmi.
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.
Closing down our focus issue in memoriam of British physicist Professor Alexander Dalgarno
We get some inspiration after speaking with Dr Jesús Pérez Ríos, member of Professor Chris H. Greene’s group (Purdue University), about his research and hearing his overview of the field of AMO physics.
Showing that strong-field physics can be simulated using an optical waveguide.
A new method to generate complex light beams from integrated-optics circuits is theoretically investigated in a new paper by Andrea Crespi and Francesca Bragheri
A new way of simulating lattice spin models using ultracold Rydberg atoms

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.
Protocol for rotation sensing with trapped ions provides blueprint for big sensitivity boost in a small package.

Introducing our ‘Highlights of 2016’ collection
Professor Bryce Gadway is the head of the Gadway Lab at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Gadway and his group perform experiments on ultracold atomic quantum gases, in particular relating to quantum simulation. He recently published a Topical Review in JPhysB on Strongly interacting ultracold polar molecules, and we took some time to talk to him about his research and the field of AMO physics.
