Scientists study 'smart' magnetic gel in a magnetic field

Magnetic gels are the new generation of "smart" composite materials. They consist of a polymer medium and nano- or micro-dimensional magnetic particles embedded in it. These composites are frequently used in magnetically controlled shock absorbers, stabilizers, safety systems, and mechanical stress amplifiers, as well as in biotechnology for the purpose of regeneration of biological tissues.
