Detecting Tiny Twists With A Nanomachine

Monday, November 3, 2008 - 16:08 in Physics & Chemistry

Scientists have developed a nanoscale spin-torsion oscillator that can measure miniscule amounts of twisting or torque in a metallic nanowire. The device can be used to uncover spin-dependent fundamental forces in particle physics and have applications in spintronics, chemistry, biology and fundamental physics.
