Chris Hammel’s commentary titled “Imaging: Nanoscale MRI” was published in the April 2009 issue of the journal Nature in the section News & Views.
Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging offers rich three-dimensional pictures, but with limited resolution. Imaging at the nanometre scale has now become possible using highly sensitive force-detection techniques.
Nature is the international weekly journal of science and has been published monthly since 1870. The full text is available here.
Trains that don’t touch the track? Bananas can be hammers? Metals can have memory?!? Middle school students investigated these phenomena and more during a morning of hands-on activities with CEM faculty, staff, graduate, and undergraduate students on February 18, 2009. This visit to the CEM was part of the Breakfast of Science Champions, an Ohio State program that introduces students to science, math, and engineering, and the visit was the second hosted by the CEM this academic year. The students will return to campus in May to participate in a videoconference during which they will share what they learned about the CEM and materials science with other students.
