New Experience In Nanodisk Magnetic Vortices
2012-08-08 13:06:06

Berkeley Lab Researchers Take a Mesocale Look at Magnetic Vortex Formations The phenomenon in ferromagnetic nanodisks of magnetic vortices — hurricanes of magnetism only a few atoms across — has generated intense interest in the high-tech community because of the potential application of these vortices in non-volatile Random Access Memory (RAM) data storage systems. New findings from scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)´s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
