Applied Magnetics Laboratory (AML)

At AML, opposites really do attract. A hub for research on magnetic materials and devices, it’s inspiring breakthroughs in biology, electronics, life sciences, medicine and 3-D manufacturing.


Imagine knowing when a crop of oranges was ripening, well before the naked eye could see it. Or being able to detect toxins in water without testing for them. Researchers at AML may have the answers, using magnetic nanobeads in integrated sensors.


As the demand for unlimited data storage escalates, AML is developing fresh ways to integrate magnetic memory technology with microprocessor technology. Their research into new materials and devices may yield a better user experience for computer and smartphone users everywhere.


By harnessing magnetic nanoparticles, the staff at AML is developing promising solutions to detect disease markers, image tumors and treat cancer more effectively.
