Latest Magnetic field Stories
Researchers from the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO), in collaboration with the CSIC and Macquarie University in Australia, have developed a new technique, similar to the MRI but with a much higher resolution and sensitivity, which has the ability to scan individual cells.
Although scientists have been aware that magnetism and electricity are two sides of the same proverbial coin for almost 150 years, researchers are still trying to find new ways to use a material’s electric behavior to influence its magnetic behavior, or vice versa.
A new analysis of over 56 years of data has revealed that sockeye salmon use magnetic maps to navigate their way back to spawning grounds after years at sea.
An astronomer wrote in the journal Physical Review Letters about a new mechanism for the magnetization of the early universe.
Geologic evidence shows the Earth's magnetic field flips about once every 450,000 years. The last reversal happened about 780,000 years ago, so looking at the average interval, we are overdue.
Scientists writing in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) said the magnetic gravity fields of Earth are going through some changes.
Astronomers have measured the largest-ever magnetic field around a massive star and reported their findings in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
Researchers reproduce plasma loops to help understand solar physics
A team of researchers at RIKEN and the University of Tokyo has demonstrated a new material that promises to eliminate loss in electrical power transmission.
- A small wooded valley; a dell.
- The protecting weather-shed built around the entrance to a house.
- The roofed-over space between the kitchen and the sleeping-quarters in a logging-camp, commonly used as a storeroom.
