Nanotechnology: Molecular dynamics simulations of carbon nanotube-based gears

The article in the Institute of Physics' (IOP) Nanotechnolgy entitled "Molecular dynamics simulations of carbon nanotube-based gears" offers a glimpse into the future of what scholarly publishing could be. Concepts "come alive" in the multimedia appendices. The eight page article (available in Adobe Acrobat [.pdf] and postscript format) is tailored for specialists and includes some photos, but all...
Biophysical Journal

In collaboration with HighWire Press, the Biophysical Society has placed online Biophysical Journal, which emphasizes experimental and theoretical approaches to methods "addressing the mechanisms of biological processes at every level and across many fields, including bioenergetics, contractility, membrane biophysics, structure and assembly, molecular biophysics, and photobiology." Full-text...
Physics and Society Newsletter

The July issue of the American Physical Society's e-newsletter is out (HTML). Articles include one on fission and fusion and also a diversion from the norm: a commentary on the creationist movement.
Condensed Matter Physics

Founded in 1993 by the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the journal Condensed Matter Physics is a peer-reviewed, English-language journal covering such aspects of condensed matter as phase transition theory, statistical mechanics of spin and spin-electron systems, metals and alloys, liquids, solutions, electrolytes, surface phenomena, and...
Physics Today

Physics Today is a monthly journal of the American Institute of Physics that has been in circulation for 50 years. Now Physics today is available free online. Lively news and reviews, the latest discoveries,, and a forum for discussion of current issues in physics make up the journal. this month's special focus is on the centennial anniversary of NIST (the National Institute of Standards and...
The Review of Particle Physics

The Particle Physics Group (PDG) is an "international collaboration that reviews particle physics and related areas of Astrophysics, and compiles/analyzes data on particle properties." The Web site features the 2002 publication, The Review of Particle Physics, which is described as "the most cited publication in particle physics during the last decade." Visitors have access to summary tables and...
The Los Alamos National Laboratories Research Quarterly

The Research Quarterly is published "to communicate the Laboratory's achievements and how they benefit our neighbors, our nation, and the world." Highlights of the Winter 2003 issue include reports on Improving Meteor Impact Predictions, Extending the Life of Nuclear Weapons, Modeling Bone Remodeling, Proton Radiography, Simulation Science, as well as a spotlight on two Los Alamos researchers....
Society of Physics Students

The Web site for this professional association is designed primarily for students, although anyone interested in physics will find it useful. Use of the site is free, but those visitors interested in membership in the Society can join for a nominal yearly fee through collegiate chapters (one does not need to be a student to be a member). The site covers everything from internship and scholarship...
Physics Web: Greatest Equations Ever

Critical Point is a feature of the online version of the magazine Physics World. The article posted here, by philosopher and historian Robert Crease, revisits "the greatest equations ever." He presents the results from his survey of readers in which he asked for a short list of nominations for great equations and "to explain why their nominations belonged on the list and why, if at all, the topic...
Physics to Go

The Physics to Go site invites the casual visitor to "explore physics on your own." Providing an assortment of great resources, it does just that. The site functions as a monthly mini-magazine and offers a collection of more than 1000 websites, physics images, and activities. A well-designed site, Physics to Go is divided into sections including Physics in Your World, From Physics Research, and...
