physica status solidi (RRL) - Rapid Research Letters was designed to offer cutting-edge research publication at record speed. Among the fastest peer-reviewed media in solid-state and materials physics for over 15 years, the journal communicates important findings with a high degree of novelty and need for express publication, as well as other results of immediate interest to the solid-state physics and materials science community. pss (RRL) employs priority editorial handling, thorough integrity checks, and stringent peer review by two independent reviewers.

The journal covers topics such as preparation, structure, and simulation of advanced materials, theoretical and experimental investigations of the atomistic and electronic structure, optical, magnetic, superconducting, ferroelectric, and other properties of solids, nanostructures, and low-dimensional systems as well as device applications. Rapid Research Letters particularly invites papers from interdisciplinary and emerging new areas of research.
