Caption: This still from a video micrograph shows a strand of magnetic particles trapped by a "spin valve" -- which is highlighted in white -- and rotated by the application of an external rotating magnetic field. NIST is studying the possible use of spin valves arrays for parallel processing of biological molecules.
Usage Restrictions: None
