Batman chips The demand for faster and higher-density storage has prompted researchers to look for ways to control the magnetic states of tiny magnets. Seeking to improve the magnetic recording speeds and spatial resolutions in structures, Radboud University and others attempted to switch the magnetization in microstructures by using a femtosecond laser pulse. The laser light did not switch... » read more

Peanut butter and chocolate TEMs Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a new microscopy technology that combines two types of key measurements. The technology, dubbed the dynamic transmission electron microscope (DTEM), captures information about both temperature and the crystal structure... » read more
