Laura Greene, chief scientist at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, has been appointed to serve on the President’s Council of Advisors on Science & Technology. Also a professor of physics at Florida State University where the laboratory is headquartered, she […]
Maximizing image quality is a given in any new magnetic resonance imaging scanner. Delivering that capability to the maximum number of patients and doing it cost effectively, however, depends on optimizing workflows and maximizing scanner up-time. Many radiology departments are currently under extreme pressure to perform more MRI scans on more patients, not only due to the aging population but also to deal with the backlog of cases resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Quantum technology is pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the domains of computing as well as sensors, says Dr. Volkmar Denner, CEO of Robert Bosch GmbH. As head of one of the world’s preeminent technology companies […]
Marking a major achievement in the field of spintronics, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory and Yale University have demonstrated the ability to control spin dynamics in magnetic materials by altering their thickness. The study, published recently in Nature Materials, could lead to smaller, more energy-efficient electronic devices. […]
With groundbreaking new superconducting and fundamental scientific projects underway at major research facilities, Bilfinger Noell of Germany is playing a leading role in providing the sophisticated magnetics engineering expertise that is needed for them. The latest is […]
Scientists have discovered a strategy for layering dissimilar crystals with atomic precision to control the size of resulting magnetic quasi-particles called skyrmions. The approach could advance high-density data storage and quantum magnets for quantum information science. The depiction above, by […]
A team of scientists, led by the University of Leeds in the UK, made a breakthrough recently in a new advanced material which may eventually be an alternative to rare-earth-based permanent magnets. The researchers have developed a hybrid film from […]
