Photo of the Day: Single-Atom MRI Shed New Light on Protein Structures

October 21, 2014 11:31 am | by Fabio Bergamin, ETH Zürich | Comments

The sensor consisted of an impurity in diamond known as the nitrogen-vacancy centre. In this case, two carbon atoms are missing in the otherwise regular diamond lattice, while one of them is replaced by a nitrogen atom. The nitrogen-vacancy centre is both fluorescent and magnetic, making it suitable for extremely precise magnetic field measurements...
