Institute in the Spotlight

Department of Applied Physics at the Eindhoven University of Technology

The Department of Applied Physics at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has three research clusters: Functional Materials, Plasma Physics and Radiation Technology, and Transport Physics. The 12 groups in the department are embedded in one of those three research clusters.


Journal Metrics

The academic community has demanded more choice, accuracy and insight into journal performance, and Elsevier has responded with new metrics. In addition to the newly released 2014 Impact Factor,* we are happy to present SNIP and SJR: two accurate views of the true citation impact Elsevier's chemistry journals make.

Each year, the quality of papers published in our Physics journals is secured by the contribution of all our outstanding authors, reviewers and editors.

Find the highlights of the recently released 2014 Impact Factor:

We are proud to publish the three top journals in their category (Physics, Mathematical): Computer Physics Communications, ranking # 1, Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation, ranking #2and Journal of Computational Physics, ranking #3.
