This week’s Image of the Week is taken from JPhysD article Microfluidic angle of repose test for Pickering emulsions, L A Chacon and J C Baret 2017 J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 50 39LT04. In this paper the authors propose a microfluidic version of the… Read More ›
Last week saw the release of the 2016 Journal Impact Factors from Thompson Reuters, with strong performances across the JPhys series.
New constraints on theoretical nuclear models will help to determine the astrophysical site of the rapid neutron capture process One of the longstanding open problems in physics is the quest to understand how the elements on the periodic table are… Read More ›
Astrophysical reactions that are almost impossible to measure can now be studied in the laboratory The field of Nuclear Astrophysics is an exciting field that brings together scientists from many different communities: Stellar Observers, astrophysics modellers, meteorite experts, nuclear experimentalists… Read More ›
Could directed pharmacological treatments of the skeleton alter cell membrane function?
Our Image of the Week this week comes from a Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics Letter. In their letter Wei-Chen Tu et al investigate the use of three methods to increase the efficiency of textured Silicon solar cells: reduced graphene oxide (rGO), gold nanoparticles… Read More ›
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.
This week’s Image of the Week is taken from a recent Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics article using nanosecond photography to investigate metre-scale negative laboratory discharges. The study of laboratory discharges suggests there are similarities between such discharges and… Read More ›
