Scientists Exploit Minute Defects in Diamonds to Make Way for Improved Biological Imaging and Drug Studies

AZO Materials, 5.23.18

In the recent study, researchers discovered that by zapping a group of microscale diamonds with green laser light, exposing it to a weak magnetic field, and sweeping across the sample with a microwave source, they could improve this controllable spin polarization property in the diamonds by numerous times compared with conventional NMR and MRI machines. Researchers from The City College of New York, Peking University in China, TU Dortmund University in Germany, and The Graduate Center, CUNY also participated in the study. This study was supported by the National Science Foundation and the Research Corporation for Science Advancement.
