With a prestigious prize from the National Science Foundation, MagLab physicist Christianne Beekman will do "atomic-level engineering" on ultra-thin materials with promising properties.
The findings contribute to scientists' understanding of magnetic materials that could point the way to future applications.
A material already known for its unique behavior is found to carry current in a way never before observed.
In this study, researchers added a low concentration of the endohedral metallofullerene (EMF) Gd2@C79N to DNP samples, finding that 1H and 13C enhancements increased by 40% and 50%, respectively, at 5 teslas and 1.2 Kelvin.
This MagLab user talks about meeting Leonardo da Vinci, making magnetic soup and the freedom of being a scientist.
Researchers discover that Sr1-yMn1-zSb2 (y,z < 0.1) is a so-called Weyl material that holds great promise for building devices that require far less power.
With just a drop of water, a cobalt-based material changes both color and magnetic properties.
From nanorockets to nanocages, good science can come in tiny packages — all with the aim of solving really big problems.
Hop on this information train for a step-by-step look at how one physicist uses magnets to understand superconductors, spin liquids and why some materials get frustrated.
Scientists explore using one magnet to disrupt the field of another.
