Vol 96, No 4 (2016): Materials Electrochemistry, Electrochemical Processes and Systems

Description of the cover page:

An approach to solar driven hydrogen generation will be to couple an electrolyzer to a photovoltaic device for which it is imperative to design highly active, stable and inexpensive oxygen evolution reaction electrocatalysts with porous three-dimensional electrode architecture. Metallic interlayers within such composite electrode assemblies not only provide effective electron percolation pathways but also modulate the electronic structure of the active electrocatalysts.

Vol 96, No 3 (2016): Phase-Field Methods for Pattern-Formation

Description of the cover page: The cover page shows pattern-formation during a spinodal decomposition of binary alloy in 3D, two and three-phase cross-sections of three-dimensional directionally solidified microstructures, morphological instabilities during dendritic and two-phase colony formation and finally the break-up of a thin-film as a result of a mechanical instability. These are some of the mechanisms of microstructural evolution which have been modelled using the phase-field method, and a respective description of the different applicable models form a part of this review.

Vol 96, No 2 (2016): Transport in Mesoscopic Systems

The cover page shows a topological non-trivial state which maintains its chirality depending on clockwise or anti-clockwise twist. Once there is an edge or transition from non-trivial to trivial state new type of phases or excitations emerge. This issue gives a preview of those emergent fields in mesoscopic physics.

Vol 95, No 1 (2015): Plant Volatiles: Chemistry, Ecology and Evolution

The cover depicts a figure from the article by Robert Junker and Amy Parachnowitsch in this issue. It illustrates how flower scent is a floral trait that must be considered together with other floral traits such as colour, morphology and flower nectar in their influenceon pollinator visits to flowers. Therefore flowers present multimodal signals that couldbe perceived by multiple sensory channels of the flower visitors.

Vol 93, No 3 (2013): (Jul - Sep. 2013)Cyber Physical Systems

A prototypical cyber physical system consists of tiny devices embedded in the physicalworld. These devices have very energy efficient sensing, actuation, computing andcommunication mechanisms built-in. They continuously sense the physical world andrelay this information securely over the internet to a control center using machine tomachine (M2M) protocols and thus enable the Internet of Things (IoT). The control centercontinuously analyses this data and sends back commands over the internet to thesedevices to affect the physical system.

Vol 92, No 4 (2012): (Oct.-Dec. 2012) Development and Disorders of the Nervous System

Inspired form the Lord of the Rings the image depicts the birth of the nervous system in the middle. The neural tube flanked by a pair of somites with the notochord on one side and the future epithelium on the other is shown. The three large neurons surrounding the ring illustrate the ultimate manifestation of the units that will build the brain. The original message of Sauron has been replaced with giving thought to life.
