      Suspended graphene nanoribbons (GNRs), which are used in electronic devices (transistors, mass sensors, dust detectors, etc.) to connect terminals like bridges, can be treated as edge-constrained GNRs. In the article by Nakajima and Shintani (pp. 2839-2847), edge-constrained GNRs of various sizes and initial strains are studied using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. To induce strain in the GNRs, the bond lengths between carbon atoms of the initial configurations of the GNR models are varied.

      The cover image shows snapshots of GNRs with free armchair edges (left) and free zigzag edges (right) in MD simulation. The out-of-plane deformations are exaggerated tenfold, the short edges are constrained. The GNRs are under various uniaxial strains: the top-left GNR is under a small compressive strain and the top-right GNR under no strain, whereas the other GNRs from top to bottom are under gradually-increased tensile strain. As shown, the GNR under compressive strain buckles. On the other hand, ripples appear under tensile strain. With increasing tensile strain, the height of the ripples decreases and their longitudinal wavelength increases, reaching about 20 nm under large strain (bottom images). These figures suggest that the out-of-plane deformations of constrained GNRs can be controlled by imposing strains.

      The collage on the back cover of the last pss(b) issue in 2011 symbolizes the closure of the 50th anniversary year of physica status solidi. Started as a small single edition in 1961, the journal has undergone tremendous change, expansion and development into today's family of four titles and recently significant Impact Factor improvements. This issue contains special contributions by the long-term Editors Manuel Cardona (pp. 2759-2761), Alfred Seeger (pp. 2772-2774) and Karl Wolfgang Böer (pp. 2775-2785) as well as a detailed bibliometric analysis by Werner Marx and Dieter Hoffmann (pp. 2762-2771), looking back on a half-century of pss publication.
