Boosting computer performance (SPINTRONICS)

Electronics is based on measuring the tiny electrical charge of electrons passing through electronic circuits. Analternative approach under development is spintronics, which instead relies not on electrons’ charge, but onanother of their fundamental quantum-mechanical properties: spin. Read more

Quest takes a closer look at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines play an important part in the diagnosis and monitoring ofdiseases, abnormalities and injuries affecting the soft tissues of the body. As the name implies, they usemagnetism to make images, but how do they do this? Read more
