For the Editors’ Highlights pages, Nature Communications has selected a Lancaster Physics article as among the 50 best papers of recently published research in the world.

The paper by Andrew Guthrie, Sergey Kafanov, Theo Noble, Yuri Pashkin, George Pickett and Viktor Tsepelin from the Department of Physics, in collaboration with scientists from Moscow State University, used tiny mechanical resonators to detect individual quantum vortices in superfluid helium.

Nature Communications website states: “Our editors select a small number of articles recently published in Nature Communications that they believe are particularly interesting or important.

“The aim is to provide a convenient snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the various research areas at Nature Communications.”

Entitled “Nanoscale real-time detection of quantum vortices at millikelvin temperatures”, the article is highlighted under “Condensed matter” research.

The article also has a media and social media score in the top 5% of all research outputs scored by Altmetric where it is in the 96th percentile (ranked 10,097th) of the 296,509 tracked articles of a similar age in all journals and the 99th percentile (ranked 1st) of the 3 tracked articles of a similar age in Nature Communications.
