MSU scientists created a magnetic trap for neutrons

MSU scientists created a magnetic trap for neutrons | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
A team from Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics (MSU) together with their colleagues developed a magnetic waveguide able to sort neutrons with different spins and store them different layers. The results of the study may help in study of electronic devices based on not charge of electrons but on their quantum state. The article was published in Physical Review B journal.
