Ok, I saw this on Gizmodo (unexpectedly), and despite the fact that I’ve been blogging for five years now I’ve never actually seen something this amazing – the famous magnetic motor spinning by itself indefinitely, like this video shows. Now, I don’t think there’s any trick involved, there couldn’t be, …
The American Institute of Physics’ (AIP) journal Applied Physics Letters, published a report, which shows a new application of spintronics. According to the …
The two types of magnetism have been known since the 1970s when Nobel Prize was given to Louis Neel. In both ferromagnetism …
The great side about physics is that it discovers things where you would least expect them to be found. For example, just when you thought you knew everything about light, here comes an exciting new discovery that could become an alternative source of power, involving the magnetic properties of light!
Austrian inventor Flavio Thomas (Trawoger) points out that the energy capture circuits are positioned in the geometric center of the pyramid. The materials that the pyramid is made from are less important for its function.
After an experiment performed at a military hotel in Tokyo, the system called Magnetic Energy Recovery Switch (MERS) racked up a peak power savings of 39 percent. Now, researchers want that MERS to be implemented in the entire facility by next year, including the printing room, offices, gym, laundry and a break room.
According to the researchers, in the future, our refrigerators could use magnets to keep the food cold. Besides the fact that one such refrigerator uses less power and runs quieter than a conventional fridge, it wouldn’t contain any hydrofluorocarbons (HCF), gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN could change physics the way we know it. James Pinfond, from the University of Alberta, made a theory according to which magnetic monopoles could exist – unleashing the way for new kinds of energy.
A team of physicists from the Autonomous University along with Francisco Guinea from the Institute of Materials Science from Madrid, Spain, have discovered that by removing individual atoms from a graphite surface, local magnetic moments can be created in the graphite.
Jian-Ping Wang, a materials physicist from the University of Minnesota in Twin Cities, and his colleagues have produced a material that is 18% more magnetic than the most magnetic material known to this day. They have been able to produce a combination of eight parts iron, one part nitrogen. The resulted material has the formula Fe16N2 and its extremely high magnetism lies in its complicated crystalline structure.
