Dr Joe Smerdon talks about his research with beautiful molecular layers and what world issue he would like to see science solve.
JPCM topical review round-up part 2: Graphene – from 2D to 3D
In the second part of my mid-year topical review round-up I look at a review by David Tománek who examines the many challenges researchers face when taking the exceptional graphene and its extraordinary electronic and thermal properties from the 2D into the 3D world of devices and applications.
All that glitters is not necessarily gold
Silver and gold are the materials of choice for most plasmonic research but if the other materials look like gold then quite likely they have plasmonics properties like gold. Using this rule, other materials are now being explored. Materials discussed… Read More ›
JPhysD mid-year highlights
We’re coming up to almost halfway through 2015; where has the time gone?! In this years’ volume of JPhysD (48) we’ve published over 350 papers, including two special issues; Heusler compounds and Aluminium Plasmonics, and filled more than half of the years’ issues already. So let’s cast our eye over some of my highlights of 2015 so far in each section of JPhysD.

One-step epitaxial graphene grown on silicon carbide surface using “vanishing” mask
Graphene researchers Walt de Heer and Claire Berger and their colleagues at the joint Georgia Tech-CNRS Lab and CNRS-Institute Néel have demonstrated an original method for depositing epitaxial graphene on SiC using a silicon nitride mask. The mask decomposes and… Read More ›
Image of the week: crumpled graphene
The response of graphene to applied forces can strongly influence its properties and applicability in novel device physics. Crumpled graphene, created by applying a compressive stress, has great potential for gas storage, electronics and super-capacitors. Thus, studying how graphene responds to, and recovers from, stress and strain… Read More ›
