In the National Research Laboratory Services Magnetic Resonance in Solids (LANAIS) CONICET, Horacio Pastawski team seeks limits and ways to control time.
For this experiment were used molecular organic crystals, containing hydrogen, generating a kind of stain formed by magnetic waves. Pastawski says that "it is a complex process because we talk about millions of atoms that behave as compasses that influence each other by the interaction itself. We had a degree of control in these interactions, and we achieved a temporary reversal. "
To understand how this process Pastawski cites an example. "Take the case of an ink drop that falls into a bin of water and dispersed. The opposite: to concentrate the ink diluted in a drop, it seems impossible. But if one could control the movement of each of the atoms, the ink would return to the initial drop. This is achieved in the magnetic cores of a molecule, or even in a crystal ".

Just imagine a video of the ink drop disolving in the water container, got it?... Ok, now watch the video backwards, see the molecules of ink going back to their original position before the drop got in to the water.

Very intriguing but in real terms this is not time control or reversal this is atomic state reversal which is something else but may herald a new approach to the study of sub atomic reactions, imagine if you will the effectiveness of a similar method if it could be applied to the observation of sub atomic interactions at the receiver of a particle accelerator and the beauty of being able to replay the instant time and again to gather data, unlikely to be applicable but?.
In addition to improving magnetic resonance imaging, this technique is used for a temporary reversal of ultrasounds for kidney stones and tumor destruction. Reversing a wave of Wi-Fi to concentrate on the PC and achieve a safer Internet. Again chaotic reflections of a signal, usually cause unwanted "blind spots", are used to encourage personalized communication.

The experiment had nothing to do with ink drops, that was just an example to help to understand the process. I think you misunderstood it.
In the Conicet National Magnetic Resonance in Solids Investigation and Services Laboratory and at UNC, the Pastawski team manipulated atomic nuclei in crystals, generating a type of “stain” formed my magnetic waves. This stain dispersed throughout the crystal according to Quantum Mechanics – like a drop of ink disperses in water – changing the magnetic properties of the same. Then, a series of electromagnetic impulses known as “Loschmidt demons” where applied which was able to revert the process: the magnetic waves reversed until concentrating again at the point where they were created and the atoms returned to their initial state. A real “Time Machine” that acted in thousanths of a second.
