New scheme for quantum computing

( —Tom Wong, a graduate student in physics and David Meyer, professor of mathematics at the University of California, San Diego, have proposed a new algorithm for quantum computing, that will speed a particular ...

Hair sensor uncovers hidden signals

An "artificial cricket hair" used as a sensitive flow sensor has difficulty detecting weak, low-frequency signals – they tend to be drowned out by noise. But now, a bit of clever tinkering with the flexibility of the tiny ...

'Spooky action at a distance' aboard the ISS

( —Albert Einstein famously described quantum entanglement as "spooky action at distance"; however, up until now experiments that examine this peculiar aspect of physics have been limited to relatively small distances ...

'Metascreen' forms ultra-thin invisibility cloak

( —Up until now, the invisibility cloaks put forward by scientists have been fairly bulky contraptions – an obvious flaw for those interested in Harry Potter-style applications.

New Journal of Physics

New Journal of Physics (NJP) is an open-access, electronic-only journal publishing peer-reviewed research across the whole of physics. The editorial scope encompasses pure, applied, theoretical and experimental research, as well as interdisciplinary topics where physics forms the central theme.

The editor-in-chief is Eberhard Bodenschatz at the Max-Planck-Institut für Dynamik und Selbstorganisation, Göttingen, Germany and Cornell University, NY, USA.

The journal had an Impact factor of 3.264 for 2007 (3.754 for 2006) according to Journal Citation Reports. It is indexed in ISI (Science Citation Index-Expanded (available through the Web of Science), ISI Alerting Services (includes Research Alert), Current Contents/Physical, Chemical and Earth Sciences), INSPEC Information Services, Scopus, Chemical Abstracts, Compendex, International Nuclear Information System (INIS), MathSciNet, NASA Astrophysics Data System, and SLAC SPIRES Database.

NJP is permanently free to read at the journal web site.
