Editors’ suggestions (by the American Physical Society)

The American Physical Society has selected several of our papers as “Editors’ suggestion”.
For example, our work on "Analog of a Quantum Heat Engine Using a Single-Spin Qubit", Physical Review Letters 125, 166802 [PDF][Link] has been selected as a PRL's "Editors' Suggestion" [PDF, PNG, Link].


The Editors of Phys Rev Letters write: “We are pleased to inform you that we have selected your recently accepted manuscript to be a PRL Editors' Suggestion. About one Letter in six is chosen for this highlighting. We look for papers that we judge to be particularly important, interesting, and well written. Suggestions are downloaded and cited about twice as often as the average Letter, and are covered in the press substantially more often. Congratulations on your outstanding paper!”
