New Content Item

Our physics journals cover areas of physics from high energy physics; atoms, plasmas, and particles; to optics and photonics; and computational cosmology and astrophysics. Toward the more applied side of physics, you’ll find our nanoscience journals, and journals that, while grounded in physics, take a multidisciplinary, “convergence” approach to large problems. 

CERN sponsoring APCs for methods articles in EPJ TECHNIQUES AND INSTRUMENTATION

New Content ItemEarlier this year, CERN expanded its open access mandate to the researchers it funds to include methods articles. As a result, CERN will sponsor article-processing charges for CERN-funded researchers’ methods articles in EPJ Techniques & Instrumentation.

New Content ItemComplementarity in single photon interferencethe role of the mode function and vacuum fields

Here the spatial coherence properties of these vacuum fields are demonstrated as the physical reason for complementarity in these single photon quantum optical experiments. These results are directly connected to the mode picture in classical optics...

New Content ItemEntropy-limited hydrodynamics: a novel approach to relativistic hydrodynamics

We present entropy-limited hydrodynamics (ELH): a new approach for the computation of numerical fluxes arising in the discretization of hyperbolic equations in conservation form.

New Content ItemThe weakness of weak ties for novel information diffusion

...I argue that weak ties, especially the kind that span subgroups, are often also lower-capacity. Due to a lack of trust, an unwillingness to share benefits, or a limited ability to understand one another, an individual is less likely to share novel information across these ties...
