The fundamental working principle of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is based on the induction of proton spin and the detection of the proton spin response when radio frequency pulse is emitted. Protons in water and fat inside the human body act as magnetic dipoles (small...

Protons are tiny. A proton has a diameter of just 1 femtometer, or 0.000000000000001 meters. This is around 100,000,000,000 times smaller than this dot:. So, looking inside protons requires great ingenuity.In normal life we can use visible light to study...
