Why High-Temperature Superconductors?
The race to discover ever-warmer superconductors is heating up. Find out what these materials are, what they’re good for and why this field is red hot.
New NMR Magnet Reaches Peak Performance
Producing a high magnetic field that is also very stable and uniform, the Series Connected Hybrid magnet is being used for NMR experiments never before possible.
Helium Nanodroplets Shed Light on Other Materials
Scientists gained insight into a hard-to-observe growth process in classical alloys by studying a quantum system that they could observe.
How Do DC Motors Work?
They make things like appliances and power tools work by converting electrical energy to mechanical energy. Find out how in our latest installment of See-Thru Science.
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.
