Best Of 2014The 2014 edition of our Best of pss looks back on another very successful publication year of physica status solidi. It includes contributions from two Focus Issues on topological insulators and semiconductor nanowires in our flagship journal pss (RRL) – Rapid Research Letters as well as further [email protected], Review or Feature Articles in pss (a)/(b) and selected regular contributions from all four pss journals. Take a look at an impressive collection of a wide spectrum of topics, ranging from silicene to thermoelectric applications and written by expert authors from all over the world.

Please enjoy reading this collection online, grab your personal print copy at forthcoming scientific meetings (e.g., E-MRS in Lille), or request one directly from the editorial office by email.
