Research scientist Maedeh Darzi studied this 18th century Islamic prayer book using infrared light generated by a synchrotron.

A magnet-powered synchrotron at the first major international research center in the Middle East aims to draw scientists into cross-cultural collabora…

The Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (or EAST) uses more than a dozen 6-tesla superconducting magnets to generate and contain sun-like energy.

By manipulating plasma with magnets, scientists are creating the same kind of energy produced by stars.

In addition to heat and light, our sun cranks out a complex, swirling magnetic field.

Tissue sodium concentration maps of a 24-year-old (left) and a 73-year-old (right) made in the 9.4-tesla MRI show differences in cerebrospinal fluid (white) but little variance in brain tissue (green) despite age.

Pack a sack lunch and load up! We're hitting the road to learn how this massive magnet tracks sodium moving through your brain.
