Very high magnetic fields now enable researchers to understand what surrounds calcium atoms in materials.
With a prestigious prize from the National Science Foundation, MagLab chemist Yan-Yan Hu hopes to boost the performance of materials by engineering them with the best possible flaws.
Two MagLab teams tried marrying vastly different technologies to build a new type of magnet: the Series Connected Hybrid. Decades later, has the oddball pairing panned out?
Findings that “go against the textbooks” may improve biofuel production
With unprecedented sensitivity and resolution from state-of-the-art magnets, scientists have identified for the first time the cell wall structure of one of the most prevalent and deadly fungi.
If engineers build stronger magnets, scientists promise they will come … and that discoveries will follow.
A technique called dynamic nuclear polarization is hitting its stride, using electrons to shine a light on complex molecules.
Is there enough zinc in my toothpaste? Polarizing Agent comes to the rescue.
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.
MagLab scientists and engineers have developed a special coating on Bi-2212 superconducting wire for electrical insulation in superconducting magnets that will enable the wire to be used in ultra-high field nuclear magnetic resonance magnets.
