Mar 4th, 2010 | By | Category: Issue, March 4, 2010, Research

Building a better light bulb, harnessing nuclear fusion or even researching the beginning of life on Earth requires magnetized electrons. To date, creating these special “spin-polarized electrons” is difficult and time-consuming. UNL physicist Tim Gay is developing a turnkey source of spin-polarized electrons with a $610,000 grant from the National Science Foundation funded by the […]
