In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Maciej Bieniek, Tomasz Woźniak and Paweł Potasz investigate atomically thin bismuth nanostructures in the context of stability of their topological properties.
In a recent JPCM paper an effective structure descriptor was developed to assess the similarity between atomic structures and to remove redundant entries of similar structures in the database. Statistical data give an important insight for material discovery.
Our Image of the Week for 23/01/2017, The molecular Aharonov-Bohm effect redux, from JPhysB
Emeritus Professor Risto Niemen of Aalto University, a computational and theoretical condensed-matter physicist, talks about his work, the great outdoors and how computational models are driving materials discovery.
Combining silica (SiO2) with silicon-carbide (Si2C3) to produce a new porous film – Silicatene
Non-Euclidean Crystallography is realized in a carbon-based molecular structure, related to a Black-Hole
As the cost of producing conventional energy sources continues to grow, the role photocatalysts play in energy conversion technologies becomes more important. Improving the efficiency of photocatalysts has been active area of research for many years, but faces many problems,… Read More ›
In our latest featured author interview Amanda Barnard, an OCE Science Leader and head of the CSIRO Virtual Nanoscience Laboratory, talks to us about her multidiscliplinary research and why using data-driven methods is the future of the field.
Errors are everywhere, and everything is uncertain. We must understand and estimate how these affect physics, but how do we do it best?
Analysing the atmospheres of exoplanets needs knowledge of the molecules they are made up of. University College London’s Professor Jonathan Tennyson is working on the ExoMol project to do just that. We talk to him about his work.
Reformulating the graph polynomial method as an eigenvalue problem within the periodic Temperley–Lieb (TL) algebra to access critical points of the Potts model.
IOP Select: Articles chosen by the editors, for their novelty, significance and potential impact on future research. Free-to-view for 1 year.
In March this year JPCM launched a new section: Computational and experimental methods. Here we highlight some of the papers published so far.
How can the instanton method be used to determine structures in turbulent fluid flows at high Reynolds numbers?
In the third post celebrating some of the diverse and engaging topical reviews published in JPCM this year, I join the search for new materials.
This week’s image is taken from a review that looks at how physical models are able to predict the 3D structure of RNA.
