Microscale 'transformer' robots are joining forces to break through blocked arteries
Swarms of microscopic, magnetic, robotic beads could be scrubbing in next to the world's top vascular surgeons—all taking aim at blocked arteries. These microrobots, which look and move like corkscrew-shaped ...
How biological motors and molecules can be used to measure magnetic materials
Ludwig Maximilian University physicists were able to show how biological motors and molecules can be used to carry out precise measurements of magnetic materials.
Trapping vortices key to high-current superconductors
If we are to see the promised benefits of high-temperature superconductors, such as low-loss motors and generators or maglev trains, we will need superconductors that can carry very large currents.
Application of high-temperature superconductor yields world's highest magnetic field
A Japanese research team has successfully developed a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) system equipped with the world's highest magnetic field, 1,020 MHz. In addition, taking actual measurements with this ...
Extreme lab at European X-ray laser XFEL is a go
The Helmholtz Senate has given the green light for the Association's involvement in the Helmholtz International Beamline (HIB), a new kind of experimentation station at the X-ray laser European XFEL in Hamburg, ...
