Using nanomagnets to enhance medical imaging
Nanoscale magnets in the form of iron-containing molecules might be used to improve the contrast between healthy and diseased tissue in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)—as long as the concentration of nanomagnets
is carefully managed—according to a new report* by researchers at the National Institu...
Bacteria which sense the Earth's magnetic field
...ich, for a long time, have only been known in eukaryotes -- i.e., organisms whose cells have nuclei.
The fact that the chain structure of bacterial nanomagnets
is exactly regulated by genetics could also have implications for our understanding of the way higher organisms orient themselves to the magnetic fiel...
nanomagnets in Biological Technology
A researcher of UPV/EHU has designed nanomagnets for industry
The PhD, defended by chemist Sonia Moralejo Garca at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), achieved a well-defined line for the manufacture of nanomagnets
and other magnetic devices of wide industrial application.
It is well known that current technology tends to design tools that are...
The next generation: nanomagnets could replace semiconductors
Just as compact discs all but wiped out vinyl records, semiconductors could be on their way out, too.
A University of Houston professor has developed a similar disruptive technology, using magnetic cellular networks, that could yield such benefits as increased computing power that rivals what...
