Miniaturizable magnetic resonance: Microscopic gem key to new development in magnetic lab-on-a-chip technology
A garnet crystal only one micrometre in diameter was instrumental in a University of Alberta team of physicists creating a route to "lab-on-a-chip" technology for magnetic resonance, a tool to simplify advanced magnetic analysis ...
