Maximizing your message: How scientists should talk to politicians
In this month’s issue of Physics World, French physicist Hélène Langevin-Joliot – the granddaughter of Marie Curie – talks to reporter Tushna Commissariat about the scientific legacy of her family, delves into what’s known as the "Curie complex" and gives her own tips for scientific success.

Exact Selection of Energy in a Synchrotron: Piezo Drives Adjust the Angle in the Crystal Monochromator Accurately and Fast
Piezo-based stepping drives from PI (Physik Instrumente) are currently being used on the ID18 beamline at the ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) in Grenoble, France.
Semrock has released three exciting new broadband filter sets that support Brilliant Violet and Ultraviolet dyes (BD Biosciences).
(Tokyo, 29 June 2015) Welcome to theJSAP Bulletin! Specifically designed for PC and smart phone formats, the Bulletin is an innovative multimedia platform highlighting the activities of the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP).
At the height of the First World War, in the trenches, German physicist Heinrich Barkhausen was eavesdropping on Allied telephone conversations. Every now and again, the Allied communications were drowned out by some strange sounds. The soldiers dubbed them “whistlers” because they sounded similar to shells flying overhead.
Weird natural phenomena: Physics of the rare, transient or remote
The efficiency of synchrotron light sources is heavily dependent on the vacuum quality within the beam lines. Small mass spectrometers (RGAs) are routinely utilized to provide real-time vacuum monitoring for confirmation of contaminant status, and the associated radiation level is a potential issue.
Hyperspectral characterization of various types of solar cells will be presented at the 42nd IEEE PVSC meeting by Laurent Lombez (IRDEP)
Photon etc has developed a hyperspectral imaging platform (IMA) for solar cell’s analysis in collaboration with IRDEP (Institute of Research and Development on Photovoltaic Energy, France).
The MEVION S250 proton therapy system at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) is now treating patients, after opening on May 27, less than four weeks after the first patient was treated on the MEVION S250 at Ackerman Cancer Center.
The ESRF officially launched Phase II of its innovative renovation project, the Upgrade Programme. The highlight and major technological challenge of this second step is the creation of an ultra-bright synchrotron source with performances 100 times superior to present day synchrotrons worldwide.
The Fifth International Conference on High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering was held in Sheffield’s Cutlers’ Hall from 30 June to 3 July 2014.
