Refrigerator Magnets

July 28, 2014 2:02 pm | by MIT | News | Comments

The magnets cluttering the face of your refrigerator may one day be used as cooling agents, according to a new theory formulated by MIT researchers. The theory describes the motion of magnons — quasi-particles in magnets that are collective rotations of magnetic moments, or “spins.” In addition to...

Measuring the Smallest Magnets

July 28, 2014 1:54 pm | by Weizmann Institute of Science | News | Comments

Imagine trying to measure a tennis ball that bounces wildly, every time to a distance a million times its own size. The bouncing obviously creates enormous “background noise” that interferes with the measurement. But if you attach the ball directly to a measuring device...

Superconductivity Could Form at High Temperatures in Layered 2D Crystals

July 28, 2014 1:45 pm | by University of California - San Diego | News | Comments

An elusive state of matter called superconductivity could be realized in stacks of sheetlike crystals just a few atoms thick, a trio of physicists has determined. Superconductivity, the flow of electrical current without resistance, is usually found in materials chilled to the most frigid temperatures, which is impractical for most applications...
