Nature Milestones in spin

Nature Milestones in Spin was published yesterday, 28 February 2008. Nature Milestones in Spin is a presentation from Nature Physics that focuses on ground-breaking technologies and advances in ‘spin’ — the idea that elementary particles possess intrinsic angular momentum, which substantially affects their behaviour. This Nature Publishing Group supplement tells the story through a series of ‘milestones’ marking the significant developments through the twentieth century to the present day.
