“Take a fine strand of silica fiber, attach it at each end to a slow-turning motor, gently torture it over an unflickering flame until it just about reaches its melting point and then pull it apart. The middle will thin out like a piece of taffy until it is less than half a micron across — about 200 times thinner than a human hair.”
Ultrahigh transmission optical nanofibers
Press Release by John Amst, June 17, 2015
Carefully fabricating nanofibers by heating and pulling may make for highly-efficient, optics-based, low-power atom traps.

'Researchers Study the Properties of a Novel Material, Described in the Journal "AIP Advances," that Could Help Build High Heat-Tolerant Supercapacitors'
"WASHINGTON D.C. Jan. 17, 2014 -- The capacitors of electronic circuits function something like batteries – storing electrical charge that can be quickly dumped to power devices like camera flashes. So-called "supercapacitors" take the energy-storing abilities of capacitors a step further, storing a far greater charge in a much smaller package."

AIP Advances is pleased to announce that Dr. Ben Slater (University College London, London, UK) will join us as a new Executive Editor on September 1, 2015. Ben’s research is focused on atomistic computer simulation for understanding and predicting the structure and properties of materials. Particular topics include: porous materials, water ices, defects in materials, and surface mediated processes. His expertise in computational chemistry with a materials focus will be an exceptional addition to the journal.
AIP Advances is pleased to announce that Michael Keidar (George Washington University, Washington D. C., USA) will join us as a new Academic Editor on September 1, 2015. Michael’s research concerns plasma physics and applications including plasma medicine, advanced spacecraft propulsion, plasma-based nanotechnology, and plasma-material interactions.

Congratulations to Robert H. Austin, recipient of the 2014 Max Delbruck Prize in Biological Physics
AIP Advances is proud to congratulate Robert H. Austin, Executive Editor of AIP Advances, on receiving the 2014 Max Delbruck Prize in Biological Physics.
"For his wide-ranging contributions to biological physics encompassing all scales from the molecular to that of organismic populations. His early insights on how nanotechnology and microfabrication can be employed have uncovered both new physics and revolutionized the laboratory practice of biology."
AIP Advances Announces its Debut Impact Factor

CrossMark implemented on AIP journals
AIP Publishing is dedicated to scientific accuracy and integrity and as a result has implemented CrossMark on its publications. As of December 2012, a CrossMark logo will appear on an HTML page or PDF file indicating that the publisher is maintaining the published document through any updates, corrections, enhancements, retractions, and other such changes. Clicking the CrossMark logo reveals status information about the document and tells readers whether they are accessing the most recent and reliable version or not. A link to any updated version will be included. You can learn more about CrossMark from the CrossRef website.
AIP Advances Thanks Its Referees
The Editors wish to express their appreciation to the referees for their conscientious efforts on behalf of the journal in 2012. Click here for a list.
Open Your Research to the World with AIP Advances
This year, AIP Advances will be the new home for the Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM) conference papers. AIP Advances is a peer-reviewed, rapid publication, fully open access journal covering all areas of the physical sciences. The journal’s inclusive scope and publication standards make it an excellent outlet for scientists across the physical sciences.
Increase the visibility and impact of your research
Open Access has gained tremendous momentum in scholarly publishing over the past few years in an effort to make research results available to a broader scientific community and the public at large. Moving the MMM papers to AIP Advances increases the visibility and exposure of the magnetics community’s research content, thus potentially increasing usage and citation rates.
Once your paper is published in AIP Advances, it is available to anyone immediately upon publication, no subscription required. It is also immediately discoverable through all major abstracting and indexing services including Web of Science, Google Scholar, Scopus, and DOAJ.
Be compliant with funder mandates
Publishing open access satisfies compliance with funding mandates that require research (funded by certain agencies) to be made freely accessible to the public.
Allow your work to be used and cited widely
Papers in AIP Advances are published under the Creative Commons (CC-BY) license which allows authors to retain full copyright of their published work. As such, your work may be re-used, shared, or adapted for any purpose by anyone who needs to use your results, so long as proper attribution is given.
Submit your paper
Click here to submit your paper or for more information about how to submit. With this transition to AIP Advances, conference presenters will be able to publish in AIP Advances without paying the open access fee!
