Flawed diamonds enable scientists to view nuclear spins in molecules, improve NMR technology

By Faye Oney / July 14, 2017

Researchers are taking advantage of a nitrogen vacancy in flawed diamonds to view how atoms spin and connect to form molecules. Their discovery could eventually lead to smaller MRI machines that are less invasive and use considerably less energy.
