Latest Magnetism Stories
Conference attendees can visit booth 518 to learn more about Lake Shore's Hall effect gaussmeters, fluxmeters, Hall probes, magnetometers, and other instruments and systems for magnetics measurement.
This new technical market research report from BCC Research provides an in-depth view on the dynamics of the global market for permanent magnets, industrial products made from a magnetized material
Ever wonder why your dog turns in circles before relieving himself? A new study published Friday in the journal Frontiers in Zoology may hold the answer.
Oil and gas drilling companies are using the Earth’s magnetic field along with modern technology to reduce the cost and decrease the environmental impact while increasing production.
Electronic devices such as mobile phones and tablets spur on a scientific race to find smaller and smaller information processing and storage elements. One of the challenges in this race is to reproduce certain magnetic effects at nanometer scale.
The energy needed to change the magnetic orientation of a single atom – which determines its magnetic stability and therefore its usefulness in a variety of future device applications – can be modified by varying the atom's electrical coupling to nearby metals.
MarketResearchReports.Biz announces addition of new report “China Permanent Magnet Industry, 2013-2017 Research and Development Trend Forecast” to its database.
Magnets have fascinated mankind for millenia. From the Greek philosophers to scientists of the modern era, which saw the rise of quantum mechanics, magnets have been pondered and investigated.
MRS Fall Meeting attendees can visit Booth 800 to learn about Lake Shore's newest Hall measurement system and other materials characterization systems. Columbus,
By exploiting flaws in miniscule diamond fragments, researchers say they have achieved enough coherence of the magnetic moment inherent in these defects to harness their potential for precise quantum sensors in a material that is 'biocompatible'.
The compass is a tool that helps the user navigate using the Earth's magnetic poles by using a magnetized pointer that reacts to magnetic fields. Since a compass can be used to calculate a heading it quickly improved the safety and efficiency of travel, especially ocean travel. It has only recently been replaced by Global Positioning Systems. It works by indicating the direction of the magnetic north of a planet's magnetosphere. Generally the face of a compass highlights the north, south,...
An electromagnet, a magnet whose magnetic field is produced by the flow of electric current, works until the electric current ceases. The magnetic field in a simple electromagnet is created by a wire passing through it with an electric current. The strength of the magnet depends on the amount of current. By making the wire into a coil the magnetic field is concentrated. A straight tube coil is a solenoid. A stronger magnetic field can be produced by putting a ferromagnetic material, such as...
Magnetite is a magnetic mineral form of both iron(II) oxide and iron(III) oxide or (iron(II,III) oxide), with chemical formula Fe3O4, one of several iron oxides and a member of the spinel group. Magnetite is the most magnetic of all the minerals on Earth, and these magnetic properties led to lodestone being used as an early form of magnetic compass. Small grains of magnetite occur in almost all igneous rocks and metamorphic rocks as well as many sedimentary rocks. Magnetite is a...
