Materials scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Ames Laboratory  have found an accurate way to explain the magnetic properties of a compound that has mystified the scientific community for decades. The compound of lanthanum, cobalt and oxygen (LaCoO3) has been a puzzle for over 50 years, due to its strange behavior. While most materials tend to lose magnetism at higher temperatures, pure LaCoO3 is a non-magnetic semiconductor at low temperatures, but as the temperature is...

Massive Electromagnet To Be Moved From New York To Chicago
2013-06-17 08:03:21

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A super-massive electromagnet scheduled to be moved from Long Island to Chicago beginning this past weekend has been postponed due to inclement weather. The 50-foot-wide, circular electromagnet will be carefully moved in one piece from its current home in New York to the US Department of Energy´s (DOE) Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Illinois, where it will become part of the Muon g-2 experiment. The...

New Technique Defies Laws of Physics
2013-06-13 12:20:48

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online What happens when you squeeze something? It usually gets smaller, but not if you are at Argonne National Laboratory. Contrary to basic laws of physics, researchers at the Chicago laboratory have discovered a new technique for applying pressure to a material that actually causes it to expand instead of compress or contract. “It´s like squeezing a stone and forming a giant sponge,” said Karena Chapman, a chemist...
