Elvis to Magnets: I'm Stuck on You!

In honor of the King's 85th birthday this month, we imagine how he could not help falling in love with our high-field magnets.

Probe tip

Inverse Melting

New research identifies a metallic magnet that melts when cooled.

Understandable Excitement for Overhauser

New DNP technique allows observation of molecules at very low concentrations which could be used in medicine, biology and chemistry.

A microwave beam (rainbow and solid blue arrow) is used to excite a free electron (purple), which in turn enhances (dashed blue arrows) magnetic resonance signals (black arrows) on near-by carbon atoms (yellow), thus allowing high sensitivity in combination with high-resolution.
