A University of Missouri team of researchers has been awarded a Major Research Instrumentation award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) that will allow the team to purchase an ultrafast amplified laser system that will facilitate research in condensed-matter physics, material science and engineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, biology, bioengineering, and medicine.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is funding cutting-edge research into new magnetic materials and the theory of spinning electrons that could lead to better data storage and processing and more efficient magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for radiologists, and it may even have implications for quantum computing. MU physics professors David Singh and Carsten Ullrich were recently informed they have won DOE grants to pursue their research.
