Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics
Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics publishes significant new results in all aspects of applied physics research. Coverage is deliberately broad, with four main focus areas: magnetism; photonics and semiconductors; plasmas and plasma-surface interactions; and condensed matter, interfaces and related nanostructures.

IOP Publishing
IOP Publishing provides publications through which leading-edge scientific research is distributed worldwide.  IOP Publishing is central to the Institute of Physics (IOP), a not-for-profit society.  Any financial surplus earned by IOP Publishing goes to support science through the activities of IOP.

Beyond our traditional journals programme, we make high-value scientific information easily accessible through an ever-evolving portfolio of community websites, magazines, conference proceedings and a multitude of electronic services.  Focused on making the most of new technologies, we’re continually improving our electronic interfaces to make it easier for researchers to find exactly what they need, when they need it, in the format that suits them best.
