The physical review preprint template splits the page into two columns for a journal style. I have both long equations and large figures which I would like to display on a full line.

How can I achieve this?

    Assuming you are using revtex4-1 or revtex4-2: two-column figures are obtained with the figure* environment, while long equations can be typed in the widetext environment. – campa Aug 14 at 7:28
  • @campa Both widetext and figure* where perfect. Please write your comment as an answer and I will accept it. – AngusTheMan Aug 14 at 7:43

The revtex classes (both revtex4-1 and the newer revtex4-2 provide the figure* environment for two-column figures as well as the widetext environment for text (and equations) which should be in one column. If I remember correctly the content of the figure* environment always appears on the following page.

\documentclass[aps,prd,reprint]{revtex4-2}

\usepackage{graphicx,lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-6]
\begin{widetext}
\[
a=b
\]
\end{widetext}
\lipsum[3-4]
\begin{figure*}
\rule{5cm}{2cm}
\caption{Text.}
\end{figure*}
\lipsum[5-6]
\end{document}
