With a new tool, scientists can analyze nanostructures at an unprecedented level of detail without destroying them in the process, say researchers.
Before, structural analysis destroyed whatever nanomaterial scientists examined.
“This limitation is now overcome by our new techniques, which rely on inherently non-invasive nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) probing,” says Alexander Tartakovskii of University of Sheffield.
