A detector you can wear

Swiss scientists from ETH Zurich have developed the first elastic detector for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The detector in the form of an elastic bandage moulds itself to the shape of the patient's body, which also ...

Team controls thermal fluctuations with spin current

(PhysOrg.com) -- A team of researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, the University of Muenster, and West Virginia University have demonstrated control of magnetic thermal fluctuations using current. ...

Beautiful red Aurora

(PhysOrg.com) -- A coronal mass ejection (CME) shot off the sun late in the evening of October 21 and hit Earth on October 24 at about 2 PM ET. The CME caused strong magnetic field fluctuations near Earth's surface – ...

Greener memory from random motion

Random thermal fluctuations in magnetic memory can be harnessed to reduce the energy required to store information, according to an experiment reported in the current issue of Physical Review Letters. The development could ...

Quantum-limited Measurement Method for Nanosensors

(PhysOrg.com) -- (PhysOrg.com) -- A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and the Ludwig Maximilians University have succeeded in applying a novel optical method to nano-mechanical oscillators. ...

Physicists offer new theory for iron compounds

An international team of physicists from the United States and China this week offered a new theory to both explain and predict the complex quantum behavior of a new class of high-temperature superconductors.
