Nanoscale rust: The future of magnets?

Every motor we use needs a magnet. University of Manitoba researcher Rachel Nickel is studying how rust could make those magnets cheaper and easier to produce.

Physicists find unusual waves in nickel-based magnet

Perturbing electron spins in a magnet usually results in excitations called "spin waves" that ripple through the magnet like waves on a pond that's been struck by a pebble. In a new study, Rice University physicists and their ...

Study reveals origin of superconductivity in nickelates

Nickelates are a material class that has excited scientists because of its recently discovered superconducting ability, and now a new study led by Cornell has changed where scientists thought this ability might originate, ...
