Latest Magnetic field Stories
Scientists understand that Earth's magnetic field has flipped its polarity many times over the millennia. In other words, if you were alive about 800,000 years ago, and facing what we call north with a magnetic compass in your hand, the needle would point to 'south.'
To achieve nuclear fusion for practical energy production, scientists often use magnetic fields to confine plasma.
A team of scientists has proposed a novel model for the generation of a global magnetic field in the ancient moon, which could help solve a decades-old mystery about the presence of magnetized rocks on the moon’s surface.
Each year, plant viruses and fungal attacks lead to crop losses of up to 30 percent.
It’s a bit of a challenge.
A breakthrough in understanding materials for next-generation electronic devices.
Women with high exposure to magnetic fields during pregnancy may have a higher risk of asthma in their children, according to this study.
Physicists at Forschungszentrum JÃ¼lich and the universities of Kiel and Hamburg are the first to discover a regular lattice of stable magnetic skyrmions â€“ radial spiral structures made up of atomic-scale spins â€“ on a surface instead of in bulk materials.
High speed plasma flows, often referred to as jets, are extremely common across the Universe.
On June 22, 2011, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf set a new world record for magnetic fields.
