Image of the week: Coalescence of Pickering emulsions.
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 ›
2016 Impact Factors for the JPhys Series
Last week saw the release of the 2016 Journal Impact Factors from Thompson Reuters, with strong performances across the JPhys series.
Where in the universe are the heavy elements on the periodic table created?
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 ›
Nuclear reactions in exploding stars
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 ›
Image of the Week
This week our image of the week comes from a Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics paper investigating the effect of oxygen vacancies on the properties of doped Tin Oxide through Mössbauer spectroscopy. The image shows the result of simulations of… Read More ›
Super-resolution microscopy unravels the membrane-skeleton interface of living cells
Could directed pharmacological treatments of the skeleton alter cell membrane function?
Image of the Week
This week our image of the week comes from a Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics Topical Review looking at the modelling of turbulence in thermal plasma flows. Such modelling is vital to realise the full usage of these flows across… Read More ›
Image of the Week
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 ›
Cell Fate in a High-Gradient Magnetic Field
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 ›
The 2016 oxide electronic materials and oxide interfaces roadmap
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.
Image of the Week: Pilot system development in metre-scale laboratory discharge
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 ›
