Exploring the properties of magnetic nano mosaics

For about ten years, magnetic skyrmions—particle-like, stable magnetic whirls that can form in certain materials and possess fascinating properties—have been a focus of research: easy to control electrically and only ...

Magnetic field

Magnetic fields surround magnetic materials and electric currents and are detected by the force they exert on other magnetic materials and moving electric charges. The magnetic field, at a given point, is specified by both a direction and a magnitude (or strength); as such it is a vector field.

In special relativity, the electric field and magnetic field are two interrelated aspects of a single object, called the electromagnetic field. A pure electric field in one reference frame is observed as a combination of both an electric field and a magnetic field in a moving reference frame.
