Annalen der Physik (AdP), a Wiley physics journal, is one of the world's most renowned general physics journals that has been serving the community since 1799.
Throughout the centuries, AdP has published many key discoveries. Today we focus on important and highly relevant findings in all areas of physics. Our topics range from fundamental research to forefront applications including emerging and interdisciplinary fields, including condensed matter, quantum physics, photonics, materials physics, high energy, gravitation and astrophysics.
On the Cover
When two neutron stars revolve around each other, they emit gravitational waves which drives them - initially very subtly but in the end very violently - towards a collision. In such a collision, neutron star matter gets ejected into space where it forms heavy elements via the “rapid-neutron capture process”. The freshly synthesized, initially radioactive nuclei power electromagnetic transients called “kilonovae” that are observable in a merger's aftermath. In article 2200306, Stephan Rosswog and Oleg Korobkin discuss today's state-of-the-art of this active research field.
It is hard to have an image of Dark Matter as we do not yet know what it is. However, we (the Guest Editors) provide graphics illustrating some of the properties of Dark Matter (wavelike nature, stochasticity, etc.) as they are hypothesized to be in a prominent class of contemporary models, at a focus of the present Special Issue on “Dark matter waves, particles, nuggets and other paradigms”.
Quantum gates are the backbone of digital quantum computing. In article number 2300275, Luis S. Yagüe Bosch, Sandro Wimberger, and colleagues present a shortcut-to-adiabatic protocol for the realization of a controlled-phase gate in Rydberg atoms. The adiabatic state transfer for the gate is accelerated by compensating nonadiabatic transitions via oscillating fields. High fidelities and fast operation times are obtained, and an application to a minimal quantum-error correction circuit is analyzed.
In article number 2300249 by Maryam Omidian, Stefan Schulte, Nicolas Néel, and Jörg Kröger, scanning tunneling spectroscopy of nearly free graphene decorated with an alkali metal at its bottom by intercalation and at its top by adsorption reveals pronounced phonon signals caused by inelastic electron tunnelling, while the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer energy gap of the expected superconducting phase remains elusive.

Preparation of Distant Quantum Entanglement and One‐way Quantum Steering in Hybrid Cavity‐Magnonics‐and‐Cavity‐Optomechanical Systems
-  22 February 2024
A cavity-magnonics-and-cavity- optomechanics hybrid system is proposed to prepare and enhance long-distance entanglement and one-way steering between magnons and phonons with the microwave cavity driven by a weakly compressed vacuum field which is generated by a flux-driven Josephson parametric amplifier. Moreover, the generated entanglement and the implementation of one-way steering show robustness to environment temperature.
Temporal Bistability in the Dissipative Dicke‐Bose‐Hubbard System
-  22 February 2024
A driven-dissipative, atomic Bose-Einstein condensate in 2D Hubbard lattice, coupled to an optical cavity mode exhibits atomic superfluid and supersolid phases corresponding to normal and superradiant photonic phases (see figure). The interplay of strong Hubbard interaction and atom-cavity coupling leads to an extended coexistence region around the Dicke normal-to-superradiant transition. The resulting temporal switching dynamics are investigated.
Hybrid Orbital Formation and Multicenter Bonding of Hydrogen Atoms and Molecules in MXenes
-  22 February 2024
The chemical bonding of hydrogen with other elements is more complex than has been thought previously. Bonding extends beyond the simple picture of conventional bonds. At the surface hydrogen atoms and molecules form bonds with adjacent Ti atoms. At interstitial sites hydrogen atoms and molecules form s-like bonds with neighboring Ti atoms and s–p hybrid orbitals with adjacent C atoms.
Magnetic Properties of A Cavity‐Embedded Square Lattice of Quantum Dots or Antidots
-  15 February 2024
Electronic density, spin polarization, as well as orbital and spin magnetizations of square periodic arrays of quantum dots or antidots subjected to the influence of a far-infrared cavity photon field are obtained using quantum electrodynamical density functional theory adapted to a 2D electron gas in a transverse homogeneous magnetic field.
