Physicists used graphs to build an extremely small magnetic field detector

Often times, it’s the smallest scientific measurements that matter most, and researchers have developed a new, super-tiny device that can detect magnetic fields even when they are extremely weak. The device, a novel superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID), is only 10 nanometers high, or about a thousandth the thickness of a human hair. It consists of two layers of graphene, …

Breathtaking new images of the sun show the popcorn-like magnetic field structure of our star

Need a little more Sun in your life? German scientists have just upgraded a solar telescope called GREGOR at the Teide Observatory in the Canary Islands. The result is a spectacular new collection of images of our star. “This was a very exciting, but also extremely challenging project,” said Lucia Kleint, scientist at the Leibniz Institute for Solar Physics in …
