New tabletop instrument tests electron mobility for next-gen electronics
Washington DC (SPX) May 26, 2016
The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, with facilities in Florida and New Mexico, offers scientists access to enormous machines that create record-setting magnetic fields. The strong magnetic fields help researchers probe the fundamental structure of materials to better understand and manipulate their properties. Yet large-scale facilities like the MagLab are scarce, and scientists must compete with others for valuable time on the machines. Now researchers from the United Kingdom, in collabo ... read more
