To watch with radio waves

Credit: University of Tsukuba Researchers from the Department of Physics at the University of Tsukuba used the quantum effect called ‘spin-locking’ to significantly improve resolution when performing radiofrequency imaging of nitrogen-free defects in diamond. This work can lead to faster and more accurate material analysis as well as a path towards practical quantum computers. Nitrogen vacancy (NV) centers have long …
