Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 036806 – Published 17 January 2007


It is shown, with the help of exact diagonalization studies on systems with up to 16 electrons, in the presence of up to two delta function impurities, that the Pfaffian model is not accurate for the actual quasiholes and quasiparticles of the 52 fractional quantum Hall effect. Implications for non-Abelian statistics are discussed.

Heating up of Superconductors
January 27, 2017

This collection marks the 30th anniversary of the discovery of high-temperature superconductors. The papers selected highlight some of the advances that have been made to date, both in understanding why these compounds behave in the way they do, and in utilizing them in applications. The papers included in the collection have been made free to read.

APS and CERN Sign Open Access Agreement for SCOAP3

APS and CERN, the host organization of SCOAP3 (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics), have signed an agreement to make the high-energy physics (HEP) articles published in three leading APS journals open access beginning January 1, 2018. This agreement acts to support the publishing of open access content for wider benefit of the HEP community.
