Scientists achieve highest-resolution MRI of a magnet

In a development that holds potential for both data storage and biomedical imaging, Ohio State researchers have used a new technique to obtain the highest-ever resolution MRI scan of the inside of a magnet. Chris Hammel, Ohio Eminent Scholar in Experimental Physics, and his colleagues took a tiny magnetic disk and were able to obtain magnetic resonance images of its interior. The resulting image -- with each "pixel" one tenth the size of the disk itself -- is the highest-resolution image ever taken of the magnetic fields and interactions inside of a magnet.
