Cell nuclei in various stages of wrinkling

December issue

This month we celebrate interdisciplinarity is biological physics research, induce a room temperature superconducting-like state with light, and determine the scaling behaviour of nuclear wrinkling.


  • Research in biological physics often requires collaboration across different fields. This Focus Issue celebrates the benefits and discusses the challenges of multidisciplinarity.

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.

Complex optics

Disorder and mode interactions are often treated as sources of noise, but can shape the flow of light in interesting and useful ways.
