Nanomagnet Islands Arranged to Create Shakti Artificial Spin Ice Configuration

Nanomagnet Islands Arranged to Create Shakti Artificial Spin Ice Configuration

For the first time, nanomagnet islands or arrays were arranged into an exotic structure (called “shakti”) that does not directly relate to any known natural material. The shakti artificial spin ice configuration was fabricated and reproduced experimentally. [More]
Liposomes, Magnetic Nanoparticles and Photosensitizers Combined to Fight Cancer

Liposomes, Magnetic Nanoparticles and Photosensitizers Combined to Fight Cancer

By combining, in a liposome, magnetic nanoparticles and photosensitizers that are simultaneously and remotely activated by external physical stimuli (a magnetic field and light), scientists at the Laboratoire Matière et Systèmes Complexes (CNRS/Université Paris Diderot) and the Laboratoire Physicochimie des Electrolytes et Nanosystèmes Interfaciaux (CNRS/UPMC), obtained total tumor regression in mice.
