Latest Magnetic field Stories
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.
SAN JOSE, Calif., July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) (Nasdaq: MPWR), a leading fabless manufacturer of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today
A new study published in the journal Nature has found that super-powerful magnetic fields can have influence near and even counteract the forces of supermassive black holes.
Exposure to iron pipes and steel rebar, such as the materials found in most hatcheries, affects the navigation ability of young steelhead trout by altering the important magnetic "map sense" they need for migration.
Using a laser beam 60,000 billion times more powerful than a typical laser pointer, researchers have recreated a small scale supernova and revealed that cosmic turbulence may have boosted magnetic fields to the power seen in interstellar space.
Electromagnetic noise from AM broadcast signals (or "electrosmog") could be interfering with the migratory flight paths of birds by disrupting the animals' "internal compass,” German researchers reported this week in the journal Nature.
Although they were launched only five months ago, ESA’s trio of Swarm satellites are already delivering results with a precision that took earlier missions 10 years to achieve.
Neutron stars – also called pulsars for the way they send pulses of light across the Universe due to their high spin rates – are some of the most dynamic objects in the Universe, characterized by incredibly compact dimensions, focused beams of radiation, and incredible surface gravity.
