Latest Magnetic field Stories
Samples of moon rocks brought back by the Apollo astronauts are a gift that just keeps on giving, and a new study has shed more light on the fact that the moon once had its own magnetic field, just like the Earth has today.
Researchers have discovered the first experimental evidence suggesting our solar system’s protoplanetary disk was shaped by an intense magnetic field which propelled massive amounts of gas into the sun over the course of just a few million years.
Lake Shore will feature its MicroMag™ systems, which are ideal for studying irreversible magnetic processes and interactions in magnetic materials. Columbus,
Imagine waking up after a night of camping to find that your compass is pointing south rather than north. It can happen. The magnetic field around Earth has flipped before — though not overnight. In fact, it has happened many times throughout the planet's history.
Electrical engineers at the Technische Universität München (TUM) have demonstrated a new kind of building block for digital integrated circuits.
Add dolphins to the list of species that are sensitive to magnetic stimuli, as a new study published Tuesday in Naturwissenschaften – The Science of Nature revealed that the creatures alter their behavior when swimming near magnetized objects.
Magnetic reconnection can trigger geomagnetic storms that disrupt cell phone service, damage satellites and blackout power grids. But how reconnection ransforms magnetic energy into explosive particle energy remains a major unsolved problem in plasma astrophysics.
Earth’s magnetic field, a familiar directional indicator over long distances, is routinely probed in applications ranging from geology to archaeology. Now it has provided the basis for a technique which might be used to characterize the chemical composition of fluid mixtures in their native environments.
Lake Shore will showcase its vibrating sample magnetometers at the rare earth and permanent magnets exhibition. Columbus, OH (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
Nanocubes are anything but child’s play. Weizmann Institute scientists have used them to create surprisingly yarn-like strands: They showed that given the right conditions, cube-shaped nanoparticles are able to align into winding helical structures.
