Smart multi-layered magnetic material acts as an electric switch

The nanometric-size islands of magnetic metal sporadically spread between vacuum gaps display unique conductive properties under a magnetic field. In a recent study published in EPJ Plus, Anatoliy Chornous from Sumy State ...

Ultrafast laser pulses meet magnetic materials in new research

Researchers have studied ultrafast non-equilibrium magnetization in correlated spin systems in recent years. At both fundamental and application levels, ultrafast laser pulse excitation and dynamics measurement provide an ...

Surprising spin behavior at room temperature

The field of spintronics focuses on spin transport behavior in magnetic metals, and the major findings in this area have important implications for the field of electronics. This is because conventional electronics primarily ...

Portable superconductivity systems for small motors

Superconductivity, where electrical currents course unhindered through a material, is one of modern physics' most intriguing scientific discoveries. It has many practical uses. Governments, industries, and health care and ...

Manipulation of the characteristics of magnetic materials

Magnets are not everywhere equally magnetized, but automatically split up into smaller areas, so-called magnetic domains. The walls between the domains are of particular importance: they determine the magnetic properties ...

Tiny super magnets could be the future of drug delivery

Microscopic crystals could soon be zipping drugs around your body, taking them to diseased organs. In the past, this was thought to be impossible - the crystals, which have special magnetic properties, were so small that ...
