Full page figures with RevTex4?

Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm writing up a document in the standard two-column mode, but there's a figure I want to insert that needs to occupy the full width of the page, although not the full height.

How could I do this? When I set the image width to be 2\columnwidth, it writes over the right side of the image with the rest of the document, not displacing it as I want it to.

Any ideas?

To force a whole page format, you can wrap the selected part in \begin{widetext} .. \end{widetext}. I've never tried this for a figure (only equations, which is it very useful for!), but it should work!

Actually, scratch that (though it will still be useful to remember for equations, so I won't delete it), but apparently there exists a figure* environment for full width figures in revtex.

widetext and figure* worked like a charm. Thanks.

Any chance if you could tell me why LaTeX is inserting these two lines at the bottom of the page now? *see attachment

That's the widetext doing that. I think you should be able to remove it and just use the figure*.

The lines are put in place for when a long equation is inserted using widetext. It tells the reader how to read around the equation.
