Seeing Ancient Chlorophyll Through Rose-colored Glasses
Using tools at the MagLab, scientists pinpoint pink pigments that are the oldest on record.
Fun & Games with Data
High-field data comes in a boggling array of shapes, squiggles and colors. Play along as we try to figure out what it all means in the latest issue of fields magazine.
Scientists are developing an MRI contrast agent that could help doctors map patient pH levels for the diagnosis and treatment of tissue inflammation, cancer and other conditions.
Insights into Iron-Based Superconductor
Scientists determined the Fermi surface of CaFeAsF and detected quantum oscillations.
Developing Superconductors for the Marketplace
A new grant is helping MagLab scientist Jun Lu develop a novel oxidization treatment for REBCO superconducting magnets.
Scientists use our magnets to explore semiconductors, superconductors, newly-grown crystals, buckyballs and materials from the natural world — research that reveals the secret workings of materials and empowers us to develop new technologies.
Scientists here are working to optimize petroleum refining, advance potential bio-fuels such as pine needles and algae, and fundamentally change the way we store and deliver energy by developing better batteries.
