Explore our special collections on the trending topics and key issues that matter to scientists in all parts of the world. We'll be adding new collections on a regular basis; let us know at email@example.com if you have any special requests.
Scientists are exploiting the continuing advances in computing power to explore and understand ever more complex systems. From advanced computer models that can probe the properties of many different physical systems, to machine learning to quantum computing, check out our special collection.
Experiments that probe the exotic behaviour of matter at ultralow temperatures depend on the latest cryogenics technology. This special collection explores the tools and techniques used at cryogenic temperatures, as well as some of the latest research in low-temperature physics
The remarkable progress in 3D bioprinting is now allowing scientists to fabricate artificial tissues and organs that could one day be implanted into the human body. This series of reports offers an insight into some of the most exciting recent advances, many of which were originally published in the IOP Publishing journal Biofabrication.
Explore our special collection of videos and articles highlighting the latest interdisciplinary research on local and global environmental challenges, plus solutions for creating more sustainable technologies and societies
Following the death of Stephen Hawking on 14 March 2018, we bring you a collection of articles and videos linked to the work of the legendary cosmologist and mathematical physicist, including some of the research papers that he wrote.
When LIGO detected gravitational waves from the collision of two neutron stars on 17 August 2017, more than 70 telescopes and observatories operating across the full electromagnetic spectrum trained their sights on the merger and its aftermath. This collection traces the route to that single event, and explores what it means for the future of multimessenger astronomy.
A background in physics can lead to a diverse range of careers in academia, industry or beyond. This collection explores the colourful range of physics careers, as well as some of the barriers that remain for certain individuals and groups, particularly around access and equality.
