Magnetic storage structures Researchers from The Ohio State University and Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico investigated a new material that could potentially increase the capacity of magnetic storage devices. They identified manganese germanide, an unusual magnetic material in which the magnetism follows helices, similar to the structure of DNA. The structure gives rise to a number ... » read more

Optical oscilloscope Researchers from the University of Central Florida developed an optical oscilloscope to measure the electric field of light. The high speed at which light oscillates has made reading its electric field challenging, with current instruments able to resolve an average signal associated with a pulse of light rather than individual peaks and valleys within the pulse. “... » read more
