Our image of the week comes from Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter and a recent paper from Junje Zhang et al. investigating the chemisoption of hydrogen on graphene using molecular dynamics.
Condensed matter physics
“By breaking disciplinary barriers, I believe condensed matter physics has placed itself at the frontier of science” – an interview with JPCM section editor Professor Talat Rahman
Talat Rahman is a Distinguished and Pegasus Professor at the Department of Physics, University of Central Florida, and section editor of the new Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter section on Physics of Chemical Processes.
How does weak bond disorder affect the classical spin liquid state in a geometrically frustrated Ising Kagome system?
We explore the range of topics covered by JPCM and see how these have evolved over the years
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.
Zacharias Fthenakis and Nektarios Lathiotakis propose a fast and accurate description of the mechanical response of any 2D structure under any strain conditions.
Could alloy melt structure in an electromagnetic field be accurately characterized by electrical parameters? What`s the relationship between these electrical parameters and solidification microstructures?
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.
Is KDP a model order-disorder lattice without any displacive component? Not according to NMR.
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.
