Our Best of pss looks back on a particularly successful publication year of physica status solidi, this time with a strong focus on our flagship journal pss (RRL) – Rapid Research Letters. It contains two outstanding Review@RRL contributions on topological insulators (see our forthcoming Focus Issue) and III-nitride semiconductor surfaces, as well as many more Feature Articles, Advanced Materials Physics and further regular articles from pss (a) and (b).

Please enjoy reading this collection online, grab your personal print copy at one of the forthcoming scientific spring meetings (including DPG, APS, MRS, and E-MRS), or request one directly from the editorial office by e-mail.


Editorial by Sabine Bahrs, Ingeborg Stass and Stefan Hildebrandt
