Zacharias Fthenakis and Nektarios Lathiotakis propose a fast and accurate description of the mechanical response of any 2D structure under any strain conditions.
Condensed matter physics
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.
How the surface structure impacts the destruction of super-liquid repellency
Expanding the family of iron-based superconductors by structural design
Sample-height deeply affects the sedimentation-diffusion-equilibrium of colloidal mixtures.
A one-day workshop celebrating young researchers at the forefront of Fundamental and Applied Physics in Japan. Register now.
Correlation between the Zeeman-effect and localization of 2D excitons
Are plasmons hosted in atomically thin metallic wires a possible solution for future waveguides?
It’s all change for JPCM in 2017 as we introduce some exciting new subject sections.
A new approach for multispectral plasmon-induced transparency metamaterials
Invited to our special issue on the physics of supercapacitors and electroactuators, Guang Feng and his team explain their work into asymmetrical dications.
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.
In this week’s image of the week we highlight the third-order conductances of graphene nanoribbons (GNR).
David J. Thouless, F. Duncan M. Haldane and J. Michael Kosterlitz win this year’s Nobel Prize for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter.
