Scientists from ITMO University in collaboration with colleagues of the NeuroSpin research center and Institut Fresnel from France have developed a new probe for magnetic resonance microscopy. A unique composite material developed by St. Petersburg enterprise Ceramics Jsc. and patented in Russia and the US was used for this project. Experiments showed that the new probe’s sensitivity is two times higher than that of the commonly used probes made of copper. The probes developed with the help of ceramics make it possible to decrease the time required to collect data from biological samples as well as increase the quality of images. The article was published in Advanced Materials.
Russian physicists with their colleagues from Europe through changing the light parameters, learned to generate quasiparticles — excitons, which were fully controllable and also helped to record information at room temperature. These particles act as a transitional form between photons and electrons so the researchers believe that with excitons, they will be able to create compact optoelectronic devices for rapid recording and processing an optical signal. The proposed method is based on the use of a special class of materials called metal-organic frameworks. The study appeared in Advanced Materials.
