New Technique Allows 3-D Mapping of the Magnetic Vector Potential

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have developed a new technique [1] that maps the magnetic vector potential (one of the most important electromagnetic quantities and a foundation of quantum mechanics) in three dimensions. The vector potential is central to a number of areas of condensed matter physics, such as superconductivity and magnetism. Read more
