Philosophical Magazine Letters: Structure and Properties of Condensed Matter Make your mark in materials science and condensed matter physics

Philosophical Magazine Letters

Philosophical Magazine Letters is the rapid communications part of the highly respected Philosophical Magazine, which was first published in 1798. Its Editors consider for publication short and timely contributions in the field of condensed matter physics and materials science describing original results, theories, and concepts relating to the structure and properties of metals, alloys, crystalline materials, ceramics, polymers, glasses, semiconductors, amorphous thin films, composites, and soft matter. Articles describing experimental, theoretical, and modelling studies, especially those that interpret behaviour on a microscopic, atomic, or electronic scale, are particularly appropriate.
