Making Science for Everyone
With girls and women still facing hurdles in STEM fields, science education expert Roxanne Hughes discussed how to create a more inclusive climate at the MagLab’s recent Science Cafe.
Sex and the Spineless
We open a can of worms to learn how pheromones help invertebrates regulate population.
Building Better Batteries
Thanks to a new NMR technique, scientists can now observe lithium moving through an electrolyte in real time.
Cheaper Ways to Make Strong Permanent Magnets
New technique developed at the MagLab transforms common materials into powerful magnets.
MagLab Reclaims World Record
The National MagLab reclaims a long-held record with a 41.4-tesla resistive magnet that will make some of the highest fields available to more scientists.
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.
