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 ›
This week’s image of the week is a typical spectral map with a set of lines of spectra for exchange spin waves, both in coordinates kAa, kBa. The image is taken from the article “Formation of the band spectrum of… Read More ›
Why do apparently simple nanomagnets exhibit such complicated behaviours?
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.
There has been much discussion over the past years about getting young people, particularly young women, into science and the effect of positive role models on young peoples’ decisions. Three young scientists, discuss how they got to be where they are, the people who played the most influential role in getting them there and what their influence meant to them.
Does ordering of vacancies and their type play any role on stability of MoN and TaN?
This week’s image of the week is taken from a recent paper in Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics from researchers at the University of Hong Kong, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications and the University of Sheffield. The image… Read More ›
Every sport has physics at its core, whether its football, cricket, golf or the shotput. What can we learn from physics that might help us understand our favourite games?
Can graphene be used as a nanoscopic ruler over a wide range of distances?
Novel physics-based experimental techniques and concepts from statistical mechanics may help understand why living cells use up precious energy to constantly ‘jiggle’ and ‘twitch’ their membranes.
Paul Hardaker, CEO: “We know well that science benefits the economy and creates jobs. If we are to see these benefits continue to grow we need to remain competitive in funding, and both the UK and Ireland need to be the places where physicists can do world-class science.”
