Researchers from Europe developed a graphene based device that can detect magnetic fields with a record sensitivity (down to the stray field of few magnetic molecules, better than the previous record of sensitivity by a factor of 100). The graphene was used like a spider web to chemically 'trap' the molecules and detect their magnetization at the same time. This new development may enable ultra-high density Spintronics memory and molecular sensors.
