Image of the week: Precision magnetic field mapping for CERN experiment NA62
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
Image of the week: setting sail to a neutrino telescope
How exactly do you launch strings of neutrino detectors hundreds of meters long, hundreds of meters deep in the ocean?
Finding ultra-high energy B-hadrons in high energy physics
Professor Todd Huffman tells us about a new technique that could dramatically, and simply, increase the sensitivity of ATLAS detectors to B hadrons.
Evolving images of the proton: hadron physics over the past 40 years
“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.
Looking back at 2015
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.
Did dark matter kill off the dinosaurs?
Not directly perhaps, but did it influence the final hammer blow 65 million years ago?
The Nobel prize: signs of physics to come
Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B McDonald win for their work in neutrino oscillations. Pure physics, but there could be a bright future ahead.
Latest highlights from JPhysA: mathematical and theoretical
IOP Select: Articles chosen by the editors, for their novelty, significance and potential impact on future research. Free-to-view for 1 year.
Introducing Letters from the Journal of Physics
Just one of the things we’re doing to make sure great science can get to the right people.
Image of the week: the thrill of the chase
It’s not easy being a neutrino physicist.
Thoughts of a theoretical physicist: Sir Tom Kibble
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.
Sir Tejinder Virdee: an interview with the IOP Glazebrook Medal winner 2015
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.
