Nanowire-based magnetic resonance imaging

Raffi Budakian, Institute for Quantum Computing

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has had a profound impact on biology and medicine. Key to its success has been the unique ability to combine imaging with nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy - a capability that has lead to a host of powerful modalities for imaging spins. Although it remains a significant challenge, there is considerable interest to extend these powerful spectroscopic and imaging capabilities to the nanometer scale. In this talk, I will discuss a new platform for force-detected magnetic resonance detection that allows us to bring many of the tools developed for NMR to the nanometer scale.
