STM data of the Landé g factor

June issue

This month we reveal the origin of the boson peak in glasses, probe the correlated states of moiré materials and consider what scientific progress means.

Announcements

  • Higgs boson collection

    The discovery of the Higgs boson was announced ten years ago on the 4th of July 2012 — an event that substantially advanced our understanding of the origin of elementary particles’ masses. In this collection of articles we celebrate this groundbreaking discovery and reflect on what we have learned about the Higgs boson over the intervening years.

Nature Physics is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

Our Open Access option complies with funder and institutional requirements.
