New Microscopy Technique Reveals Local Cross-Coupling Between Magnetic and Electric Dipoles

New Microscopy Technique Reveals Local Cross-Coupling Between Magnetic and Electric Dipoles

A novel microscopy technique called magnetoelectric force microscopy (MeFM) was developed to detect the local cross-coupling between magnetic and electric dipoles. Combined experimental observation and theoretical modeling provide understanding on how a bulk linear magnetoelectric effect can be realized in a new family of materials. [More]
SLAC Researchers Study Interaction between ARB Drug and Receptor at the Atomic Level

SLAC Researchers Study Interaction between ARB Drug and Receptor at the Atomic Level

An experiment at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has revealed in atomic detail how a hypertension drug binds to a cellular receptor that plays a key role in regulating blood pressure. The results could help scientists design new drugs that better control blood pressure while limiting side effects. [More]
