International Science Leaders Meet at the MagLab
The visit marked the first time the Group of Senior Officials for Global Infrastructures has met in the United States.
Pressurized Graphene as Switch?
This research is a promising first step toward finding a way to use graphene as a transistor, an achievement that would have widespread applications.
Oh, the Things We Put in Magnets!
By studying hemoglobin proteins in magnets, scientists can identify new kinds of abnormalities.
This MRI Contrast Agent May Hold Water
Easy-to-make, hyperpolarized water could lead to cheap MRIs for use in remote areas, on the battlefield or even in space — something Dr. Leonard McCoy might proudly wield.
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.
Latest Science Highlights
Imaging current flow in the brain during transcranial electrical stimulation
18 May 2018
Scientists measured the first in vivo images of stimulated current within the brain using an imaging method that may improve reproducibility and safety, and help understand the mechanisms of action of electrical stimulation.
Magneto-electric effects in metal-organic quantum magnet
16 May 2018
New materials that exhibit a strong coupling between magnetic and electric effects are of great interest for the development of high-sensitivity detectors and other devices. This paper reports on such a coupling in a specially designed material.
