    I am surprised they managed to do this this soon and, if I read the link correctly, using a tiny non-superconducting permanent magnet in replace of the usual gigantic cumbersome superconducting magnet.
    This could be very useful for helping to image molecules and chemical analysis.

    I wonder if this same technique could be used to miniaturize MRI machines which also use humungus magnets?
