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.
“Do not get discouraged by the struggles of academia. There are plenty of success stories!” – an interview with Professor Gerardo Adesso
Professor Gerardo Adesso is a theoretical physicist and Professor of Mathematical Physics at the School of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Nottingham. He is also a member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical. He works on… Read More ›
Rare-earth clustering in sulphide and selenide materials
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
“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.
We explore the range of topics covered by JPCM and see how these have evolved over the years
“Creative projects gave me intuition and insight”: An ergodic generation method for off-lattice walks
Researchers from California develop an efficient, ergodic generation method for off-lattice walks with excluded volume and analyze the effects of thickness on shape and knotting. They spoke to JPhys+ about their recent publication in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and… Read More ›
How functional can fibers become? Using a scalable thermal drawing process, we fabricated polymer fibers with a cantilever-like cross-sectional structure capable of sensing and localizing touch.
Aurelien Manchon talks about his recent work in the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter Emerging Leaders special issue
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.
In their recently published Letter in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical researchers from the University of Adelaide have provided a topological classification scheme for generalized Weyl semimetals. They talk to JPhys+ to tell us more about their research. Who… Read More ›
Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter (JPCM) has invited some of the best early-career researchers in condensed matter physics to contribute to a special issue. Called ‘Emerging Leaders’, this special issue will be part of the Journal of Physics (JPhys) series’… Read More ›
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.
“Hard work and plain stubbornness often helps a bit in achieving one’s goals”– an interview with Professor Jesper Jacobsen
Jesper Jacobsen is a Professor of Theoretical Physics at École Normale Supérieure and Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris. He works in statistical physics and conformal field theory and was awarded the Société Française de Physique Paul Langevin Prize in… Read More ›
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 ›
A new JPhysD special issue explores the boundaries that play a key role in cell adhesion, signaling, and recognition.
