Latest Magnetostatics Stories
Researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin fÃ¼r Materialien und Energie have, in cooperation with colleagues from Dresden, St. Andrews, La Plata and Oxford, for the first time observed magnetic monopoles and how they emerge in a real material. They publish this result in the journal Science within the Science Express web site on Sept. 3.
A team of Virginia Commonwealth University scientists has discovered a â€˜magnetic superatomâ€™ â€“ a stable cluster of atoms that can mimic different elements of the periodic table â€“ that one day may be used to create molecular electronic devices for the next generation.
In the race to develop the next generation of storage and recording media, a major hurdle has been the difficulty of studying the tiny magnetic structures that will serve as their building blocks.
Remote controlled with a magnetic field, aggregates of plastic particles on a microchip function like stirrers and pumps.
In developing a model to explain the motion of atoms in a magnetic field, scientists have overcome a decades-old obstacle to understanding a key component of magnetic resonance.
Every so often, Earth's magnetic field flips on its head, turning the magnetic North Pole into the South Pole and vice versa. It last happened 780,000 years ago, and is predicted to occur again in about 1,500 years ... maybe.
International study elucidates the relationship between migratory birds, light and Earth's magnetic field
MU professor receives part of $6.5 million to research nanomagnetic devices
Recently, researchers from the Hahn-Meitner-Institute (HMI) in Berlin in cooperation with University of Applied Sciences in Berlin have succeeded, for the first time, in a direct, three-dimensional visualization of magnetic fields inside solid, non-transparent materials.
UC Davis researchers studying cores of sediment collected 40 years ago have found evidence for magnetic field vortices in the Earth's core beneath the South Pole. The results contrast with earlier studies at lower latitudes, and could lead to a better understanding of processes in the core.
