Vol 100, No 2 (2020): 5G and Beyond

The emerging landscape of a connected world. 5G and Beyond will be much more about enabling diverse services and applications than previous generations of cellular telephony. The picture is an imagination of the myriad applications that are possible when seamless and ubiquituous connectivity truly becomes a reality.

Vol 100, No 1 (2020): Hydrogen Bonding

Hydrogen has a valency of one and it was assumed that it could make only one bond. Latimer and Rodebush, while analyzing the liquid water, boldly suggested that H atom from one water molecule could interact with the oxygen in a neighboring molecule forming another bond! While identifying hydrogen bond in water and later in DNA was easy, understanding it has been not so easy. It led to various descriptions of a hydrogen bond, comparable to the ancient parable from India on the description of an elephant by six blind men. In this issue, there are 16 articles and they discuss various aspects of a hydrogen bond shown in the cover image.

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.
