      This special issue of physica status solidi (a) covers a variety of activities in solid state physics research done at the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. In collaboration with the Guest Editor Zexian Cao, two Review Articles and ten Feature Articles were invited to give a broad introduction to the many facets of scientific work being undertaken at IOPCAS. Moreover, a Past & Present essay by Yupeng Wang provides a detailed historical review of the institute's development during the past thirty years. The cover page presents photographs of two buildings on the institute campus shown on a traditional Chinese-style background.

      Direct methods in crystallography derive diffraction phases directly from experimentally measured diffraction amplitudes. This is why they have played the central role in diffraction analysis of solving crystal structures. In 1987, Haifu Fan suggested that direct methods should turn to exploring new applications outside their traditional field. For this purpose, there are four ways to go: (i) from single crystals to powder samples, (ii) from X-ray crystallography to electron microscopy, (iii) from periodic structures to incommensurate structures, and (iv) from small molecules to macromolecular structures. In his Review Article on pp. 2621–2638, Haifu Fan focuses on works belonging to the last three categories done at the Institute of Physics in Beijing. The cover image shows partial electron-density maps of the protein TT0570 at different resolutions with the final structure model superimposed. Phases corresponding to each set of truncated data were derived separately and improved by density modification.

      Angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) is a powerful technique in probing the electronic structure, energy gap and many-body effects in high temperature superconductors and other materials. In their Feature Article on pp. 2674–2692, Zhou et al. report on the development of vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) laser-based photoemission techniques, including angle-resolved, spin-resolved, time-of-flight electron energy analyzer-based techniques. They highlight recent results on high temperature superconductors utilizing the state-of-theart VUV laser-based ARPES. As illustrated by the cover image, low-energy and high-energy kinks and fine electronic structures are revealed with unprecedentedly super-high precision.

      In their Feature Article on pp. 2715–2725, Lin Gan et al. present recent progresses on 2D air-bridged silicon photonic crystal slab devices made in their group in the past years. Several integrated optical elements and devices in regard to their design, fabrication, and characterization are reported. These devices are aimed to construct a more flexible network of transport channels for infrared light at micrometer/nanometer scale. The SEM image (top left) shows the four-channel photonic crystal filter, whose optical spectra (top right) show distinct four channels of dropped signals. In addition, the dispersion property of photonic crystals by engineering the band structures is reported. A photonic crystal structure with negative refraction effect is shown bottom left. The negative refraction beam (see bottom right) is clearly observed by scanning near-field optical microscopy.
