Origin of magnetic fields may lie in special relativity's spacetime distortions

( -- Magnetic fields play an important role on scales ranging from the sub-atomic to the cosmic, from particle spins to galaxy clusters. Although scientists know how to create and manipulate magnetic fields, as well as use them for a variety of applications from computers to credit cards, they still don't have a universal theory of how magnetic fields initially originated in astrophysical settings.

Evidence of magnetic superatoms could open doors to new spin electronics

Academics / General Science : Physorg Features (last year)

( —Scientists have found evidence for the existence of magnetic superatoms—small, compact clusters of atoms whose electrons occupy a set of orbitals around the entire cluster rather than around the individual atoms. If scie... Read Post

Neutral atoms made to act like electrically charged particles

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (3 years ago)

Completing the circuit they started by creating synthetic magnetic fields, scientists have made atoms act as if they were charged particles in electric fields. Read Post

Scientists find metallic magnet with largest yet atomic displacement during thermal expansion

Academics / General Science : Physorg Features (4 years ago)

( -- Although most materials change shape in the presence of a magnetic field, the change is usually very small. In a new study, scientists have found that a certain magnet containing manganese experiences a change in th... Read Post
