Paper of the Week – Dark resonances from optical pumping to cold atoms and molecules
Claude Cohen-Tannoudji reviews the various developments that have occurred in the field of dark resonances and dark states, putting an emphasis on the interpretation of the physical phenomena. He concludes that dark resonances continue to play an important role in the most recent developments of atomic and molecular physics, like nonlinear optics or ultracold quantum gases. This paper is part of the Focus Issue on Quantum Optics in the International Year of Light.

CEWQO 2015 Poster Prize Winner
Physica Scripta is proud to have sponsored the Best Poster Prize at the 22nd Central European Workshop on Quantum Optics, 6-10 July 2015, Warsaw, Poland. The winners were Evgeny Kiktenko, PhD Student of the Bauman Technical University in Moscow and Jiri Maryska from Czech Technical University in Prague.

New collection of invited papers - Cold matter, quantum optics, and quantum information in Mexico
Physica Scripta is pleased to present this collection of 19 invited articles, which have been specially comissioned by Octavio Castanos and Margarita Man'ko of the Editorial Board

New special issue - 150 years of Margarita and Vladimir Man'ko
This special issue celebrates jubilees of two outstanding physicists and science organizers: Margarita Alexandrovna Man'ko and Vladimir Ivanovich Man'ko. The subjects of the papers cover rather wide areas of theoretical, mathematical and experimental physics.

New focus issues
Physica Scripta is pleased to present the first papers published in our newest focus issues: Focus on plasmas and nonlinear science: Symposium for Lennart Stenflo, Focus Issue on gravity, supergravity and fundamental physics: the Richard Arnowitt Symposium and Focus issue on Quantum Optics in the International Year of Light. More papers will be added to these issues over the coming months.

Highlights of 2014
Don't miss our new collection of papers, celebrating the research that was published with us last year. All the papers are free to read until 31 December 2015.
