What’s MER? It’s a Way to Measure Quantum Materials, and It’s Telling US New and Interesting Things

Ames Laboratory

Experimental physicists have combined several measurements of quantum materials into one in their ongoing quest to learn more about manipulating and controlling the behavior of them for possible applications. They even coined a term for it-- Magneto-elastoresistance, or MER.
