Researchers prove magnetism can control heat, sound
Phonons—the elemental particles that transmit both heat and sound—have magnetic properties, according to a landmark study supported by Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) services and recently published by ...
Demonstration of room temperature spin transport in germanium
Researchers theoretically demonstrate the detection of a single nuclear spin at room temperature
For the first time, a researcher at the University of Waterloo has theoretically demonstrated that it is possible to detect a single nuclear spin at room temperature, which could pave the way for new approaches ...
Shedding new light on 175-year-old principle: New class of swelling magnets have the potential to energize the world
A new class of magnets that expand their volume when placed in a magnetic field and generate negligible amounts of wasteful heat during energy harvesting, has been discovered by researchers at Temple University ...
Researcher charts quantum signatures of electronic transport in graphene
Over the last seven years, Javier Sanchez-Yamagishi has built several hundred nanoscale stacked graphene systems to study their electronic properties. "What interests me a lot is that the properties of this ...
Left-handed cosmic magnetic field could explain missing antimatter
The discovery of a 'left-handed' magnetic field that pervades the universe could help explain a long standing mystery – the absence of cosmic antimatter. A group of scientists, led by Prof Tanmay Vachaspati ...
New shield makes certain types of searches for physics beyond Standard Model possible for first time
The Standard Model of particle physics, sometimes called "The Theory of Almost Everything," is the best set of equations to date that describes the universe's fundamental particles and how they interact. ...
