Hi there! You won’t have seen me around this blog before – I have just joined IOP as the new Publisher for 2 journals, including Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics. Prior to IOP I worked as a… Read More ›
Earlier this month, Journal of Physics G proudly announced the appointment of Professor Jacek Dobaczewski from the University of York as its new Editor-in-Chief. We are looking forward to working with Prof Dobaczewski to develop the journal. In an interview,… Read More ›
IOP Publishing is delighted to announce that Professor Jacek Dobaczewski has been appointed as the new Editor in Chief of Journal of Physics G: Nuclear and Particle Physics (JPhysG). His term began on 1 January 2017. A leading nuclear theorist,… Read More ›
In the CERN experiment NA62, low-mass straw-tube tracking-chambers have been designed to operate in vacuum and, in conjunction with precisely mapped magnetic fields, enable the determination of the trajectories of the charged decay products of a 75 GeV/c K+ with… Read More ›
The impact of transport data on development of streamers and induced signals
How exactly do you launch strings of neutrino detectors hundreds of meters long, hundreds of meters deep in the ocean?
Professor Todd Huffman tells us about a new technique that could dramatically, and simply, increase the sensitivity of ATLAS detectors to B hadrons.
“Once upon a time, the world was simple: the proton contained three quarks, two ups and a down. “
It’s not easy making a discovery. Sometimes you need a worldwide effort to know just where to look.
As we move into the new year, I take a look back at some of the biggest science stories that captured our interest in 2015.
Not directly perhaps, but did it influence the final hammer blow 65 million years ago?
Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B McDonald win for their work in neutrino oscillations. Pure physics, but there could be a bright future ahead.
IOP Select: Articles chosen by the editors, for their novelty, significance and potential impact on future research. Free-to-view for 1 year.
Just one of the things we’re doing to make sure great science can get to the right people.
It’s not easy being a neutrino physicist.
Professor Sir Tom Kibble is one of the world’s most respected particle physicists, and narrowly missed out on a Nobel Prize. After writing ‘Monopoles on Strings’ for JPhysG’s 40th anniversary collection, we decided to ask him a few questions.
Alongside a knighthood from the Queen in 2014, Sir Tejinder has won a raft of awards. We find out more about the man behind the mind, the importance of the Large Hadron Collider and what inspired him to become the successful physicist he is today.
