Nature Physics

Nature Physics offers news and reviews alongside top-quality research papers in a monthly publication, covering the entire spectrum of physics. Physics addresses the properties and interactions of matter and energy, and plays a key role in the development of a broad range of technologies. To reflect this, Nature Physics covers all areas of pure and applied physics research. The journal focuses on core physics disciplines, but is also open to a broad range of topics whose central theme falls within the bounds of physics.

  1. One for all

    Nature Physics, Published online: 20 January 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01449-z

    Predicting collapses of a complex system is notoriously hard. Finding ways to pull a collapsed system back to normal is even harder. A theoretical study now shows how reviving a single unit of a failed network might restore its whole functionality.
  2. Realizing discontinuous quantum phase transitions in a strongly correlated driven optical lattice

    Nature Physics, Published online: 20 January 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01476-w

    Studies of first-order phase transitions in quantum simulators have so far been restricted to the weakly interacting regime. A tunable discontinuous phase transition has now been realized with strongly correlated atoms in a driven optical lattice.
  3. Reviving a failed network through microscopic interventions

    Nature Physics, Published online: 20 January 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01474-y

    Perturbations and disturbances can bring complex networks into undesirable states in which global functionality is suppressed. Now, a recovery scheme explains how to revive a damaged network by controlling only a small number of nodes.
  4. Rotation symmetry breaking in the normal state of a kagome superconductor KV3Sb5

    Nature Physics, Published online: 20 January 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01479-7

    The precise nature of the charge-density-wave state in kagome superconductors remains unclear. Now, local spectroscopy shows that rotational symmetry in real space is broken, with one direction being distinct from the other two.
  5. Pinning down the proton

    Nature Physics, Published online: 13 January 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01484-w
