Scientists study 'smart' magnetic gel in a magnetic field

Magnetic gels are the new generation of "smart" composite materials. They consist of a polymer medium and nano- or micro-dimensional magnetic particles embedded in it. These composites are frequently used in magnetically ...

Nanomagnets levitate thanks to quantum physics

Quantum physicists in Oriol Romero-Isart's research group in Innsbruck show in two current publications that, despite Earnshaw's theorem, nanomagnets can be stably levitated in an external static magnetic field owing to quantum ...

What can be discovered at the junction of physics and chemistry?

Tomsk State University scientist Rashid Valiev and colleagues from the universities of Helsinki and Oslo have discovered a new category of rare molecules whose properties can be controlled by changing the induction of an ...

New X-ray laser technique reveals magnetic skyrmion fluctuations

A new way of operating the powerful X-ray laser at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has enabled researchers to detect and measure fluctuations in magnetic structures being considered for new ...
