Tuning the magnetic properties of multi-functional iron nanowires

Smart nanomaterials that respond to an external stimulus are a new breed of material that could shake up almost every area of science from healthcare to heavy industry. A research team led by King Abdullah University of Science ...

Unique nano-capsules promise the targeted drug delivery

Scientists have been engaged with drug delivery systems for a long time. Many "nano-carriages" for drug delivery to the desired location have been created, but many challenges remain, including preventing the medicine from ...

Magnetic nanoparticles may reveal early traces of cancer

Nanoscale magnets offer a new way to find faint, early traces of cancer in patients, according to Rice University students working on a method to capitalize on the magnets' properties. Three Rice computational and applied ...

Physicists discover flaws in superconductor theory

University of Houston physicists report finding major theoretical flaws in the generally accepted understanding of how a superconductor traps and holds a magnetic field. More than 50 years ago, C.P. Bean, a scientist at General ...

Team works on reconfigurable magnetic nanopatterns

A team of international scientists led by researchers of the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) and the Politecnico of Milan in Italy has demonstrated a novel approach for designing fully reconfigurable magnetic ...

Twisting magnets enhance data storage capacity

Members of a research collaboration have succeeded in experimentally verifying the properties of crystals of chiral magnetic materials, which may lead to the development of new types of magnetic memories with unprecedented ...
