The second of our festive Images of the Week.
The second installment of our Christmas circuitry feature! This time featuring resistors, sensors and transistors.
Who needs a chocolate advent calendar when you have an electronic advent calendar? Not us here at JPhys+, that’s for sure. Find out more about how we’re marking the days leading up to Chrismas.
When not at conferences or doing peer-review, we too like to keep-up-to date with interesting science. Plus it’s an excuse to surf the web at work! Here’s what we’ve been reading and talking about recently.
Dr Andreas Berger; Researcher Director at CIC nanoGUNE in Spain, and Section Editor of the Applied magnetism and magnetic materials section speaks to us about his research, what motivates him and where he thinks the field of magnetism is heading.
Overcoming the diffraction limit in optical microscopy has been a major barrier in obtaining high-resolution images in biophysical and biomedical research. Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics (JPhysD) have just published “The 2015 super-resolution microscopy roadmap”, discussing how researchers have developed super-resolution microscopy to overcome this limit.
This week we bring you a video feature on recent research into new optical fibres and take the opportunity to showcase some top research from across the JPhys series on light and optical technology as part of the International Year of Light. Lasers, invisibility cloaks, plasmas, nanophotonics and more
Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) exhibit unique properties, such as superior tuneability and sensitivity, due to their three-dimensional quantum confinement. These features make them particularly attractive for optoelectronic applications, such as lasers, solar cells and photodetectors.
JPhysB has begun publishing Frontiers of Free-Electron Laser Science II. Click the title to find out more.
The Image of the week today comes from a recent JPhysB paper on Airy-Bessel light bullets.
Our congratulations go to Professor Nikolay Zheudev of Southampton University for being awarded IOP’s Young Medal. Nikolay was presented the award in recognition of his global leadership and pioneering, seminal work in optical metamaterials and nanophotonics. Nikolay has served as… Read More ›
A short summary of what happened at EGAS47 in Riga this July
A look back over the research highlights of 2015 so far. JPhysA insights offer an opportunity for researchers to get a flavour of work published across the journal that may be outside their areas of expertise.
Lasers can be used to induce the emission of electrons from ions through a process called photodetachment. Particularly interesting to those working in strong field atomic physics is photodetachment in negative ions by femtosecond laser pulses. In a recent paper… Read More ›
