NIH Grant to Fund Migraine Research

Researchers at the National MagLab will study the role sodium plays in this painful disease and test treatments that could offer relief.

These 3D MRI images of sodium in a rat brain, acquired in the MagLab’s 21.1-tesla MRI scanner, illustrate the detail the instrument can capture. The image at right shows intracellular sodium, while the image at left shows extracellular sodium.

Taking Charge

Researchers found that batteries built from safe, inexpensive components can deliver much more juice than batteries built with lithium ion technology.

Assistant Professor Jose Mendoza-Cortes and postdoctoral researcher A. Nijamudheen teamed with researchers from Cornell to design a more efficient battery.

New Quantum State in Graphene

Previously unknown states of matter discovered in double-layer stacks of graphene showing complex interactions of electrons both within and across each graphene layer.

Triumph of the Trions?

Move aside, electrons; it's time to make way for the trion, a quantum bound state of three charged particles that could revolutionize information transmission.
