Our work finds surprising connections between certain mysterious four-dimensional QFTs and a better-understood set of three-dimensional QFTs.
Forget shopping this black Friday, its all about astronomy, cloaking and black holes.
Photoionization of many-electron atoms is of prime importance in controlled nuclear fusion.
As the field of nanomedicine grows, knowledge of the interactions between magnetic fields and living cells is of increasing importance. In a recent Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics article Vitalii Zablotskii et al. reviewed current research into the impact of high-gradient magnetic… Read More ›
Oxide materials are of ever growing importance for a wide range of applications. We take a look at the Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics 2016 oxide electronics roadmap with Michael Lorenz and MSR Ramachandra Rao.
For this frightful Halloween, JPhys+ is focussing on Einstein’s “spooky action at a distance,” non-locality and in particular Bell’s Theorem by highlighting a Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical Special Issue on 50 Years of Bell’s Theorem. As highlighted… Read More ›
